One of the best crab bisques I have ever had, definitely restaurant quality. However the exact recipe presented here looked a little bland so I added: 1 clove garlic, 2 jalapenos minced, 1/4 c. chives, 1 c. frozen corn, and substituted heavy cream for the milk.


This simple recipe needed some help. While I was able to reduce the fat by using skim milk, Campbell's "Healthy Choice" mushroom & tomato soups, it was too sweet for my taste. Juice from a lemon, along with diced garlic, red pepper, celery, mushroom and a spike of red pepper, added more depth to the flavor. It was great over brown rice!


This is a very simple and quick recipe but it needs some additional things to give it some taste. I used buttermilk instead of regular milk. (It gave the soup a nice consistency.) Then I added two cloves of garlic, one small onion, some fresh red peppers - just a few small pieces, a can of corn, a drop of Worecestershire sauce, a dash of basil, two tbs of Old Bay Seasoning, fresh ground pepper, and just a dash of celery salt. Season to taste. I cooked on medium heat until it started to bubble, then I let is simmer for about 20 minutes. It turned out delicious! It's a keeper if you add the extras. Enjoy!
