  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Vegetable stock by More Than Gourmet
  • 1 cup heavy cream

  3. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, broth, and cream, and simmer slowly for 15 minutes.
  4. Transfer the soup and the crabmeat to a standing blender and puree it thoroughly. (Be very careful when blending hot liquids in a standing blender, do not fill the blender more than halfway, and cover the lid with a towel. The heat will push the lid off and you will be wearing crab soup instead of enjoying it.)

  6. Taste for salt and pepper, and add a pinch of nutmeg or CrabPlace.com Seafood Seasoning. Serve immediately with crackers.
