Crab and Asparagus Soup

If you’re looking for something different to serve as a light side for a special occasion, something that’s both healthy and fancy–but without a lot of cost or fuss, this recipe will impress! A simple soup with an eclectic-Asian flair; a delicious blend of seafood and greens.  There are only 7 ingredients but it tastes like so much more.  Canned crab meat is easy to find and not that expensive.  You can wow your guests in about 20 minutes. Pick up a package of egg rolls, or steamed dumplings to go with this easy dish or serve alone, it’s going to be a hit either way!
