Cans of 5 different soups plus a can of crab or lobster meat is for the occasion when time is fleeting and you want to produce a masterpiece at an economical price!

Now if you find the name more amusing than descriptive,tell your guests it's Cream of Vegatable with Crab

Five soup flavors blend with the seafood to give an entirely new taste.

Now an old chef I know told me "if canned soups are used ,lift them out of the ordinary by adding something,In this soup that "something" is a soupmakers stand by--sauteed onions,garlic and a dash of tabasco

  1. In a covered medium (4 qt)saucepan,saute' onions and garlic in butter over medium heat until tender and glossy,about 10 minutes
  2. NOTE-Do NOT dilute canned soup as directed on the can Liquid will be added later.Use the soups full strength at this stage
  3. Pour contents of the 5 cans of soup and 1 can of seafood over the sauteed onions and garlic. At this point the mixture will be very thick. Add 2 cups (or more if desired) of water and blend well.Bring to a gentle boil,reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat.
    (Note-I didn't list salt as an ingredient due to the soups already have sodium,but if desired use sparingly)

    Garnish with croutons
  6. The soup can be made several hours before serving.Refrigerate until ready to use.
