Crab Bisque Soup


This time of year is perfect for any kind of cream based soups and I love this soup. There are some

short cuts when making a bisque by using canned cream of soups. I prefer to take the extra time and make it from scratch. It is quite easy, lower in sodium, and the taste is so rewarding!

This is a great soup for a dinner party. I have not ever made it where the guests didn't love it! Unless of course they are allergic to shellfish then you might want to re-consider :)

If you are not a fan of crab meat, this also works great for lobster, clams, or oysters. If you prefer no shell fish. You can use this base recipe also for a simple potato soup. Yum!

I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
