ISO a WW crab/corn soup recipe

Recommended Posts

My husband has done something to my old cookbooks (Tomorrow is supposed to be our 23rd anniversary ... perhaps we'll make it to then, but i'm pretty stoked right now! :mad: )

 

I had a recipe in one of my older WW cookbooks for a Chinese Crab Corn Chowder.

 

It used mock crab ... creamed corn ... i *think* a chicken broth ... no bacon or potatoes. I can't remember if it called for evap milk or not. It was around 2 points (if i'm remembering clearly). Does anyone have a low pointed soup recipe similar to this?

 

Thanks!

I'm glad you found it. I looked through all of my ww cookbooks but couldn't find anything. It looks good. I'll be trying it soon.

Thanks!

Just made this. I added two cans of the chicken broth instead of just one. I added a chicken bouillion too. It came up to the 6 - 1 cup servings. It was very thick

 

I may add some finely minced onion and celery next time, but i'm not positive.

 

It was SO sweet and yummy! I have 3 bowls packaged up to take to work next week ..... a great 2 point soup for lunch!
