Reviews for Vegetable Crab Soup
""Great stuff", said my laconic middle son when he first tasted this great take on clam chowder. Goes together quickly and easily. This soup will definitely be going into the family meal rotation, especially in wintertime."
"This is our family's favourite soup - very creamy. I serve it with cheese buns on cold, snowy days - perfect!"
