"It's an assortment of wonderfully interesting flavors that work well together. Surprisingly. I saw a similar recipe on line somewhere (not here) and I took the base and left out the exotic things (I can't identify or get) and then expounded on it. It's origin is Vietnamese. It has a very healthy and light flavor." — Victoria M.H.

Yum! I had lapband (weightloss) surgery 18 mths ago and am always looking for alternative ways to get in my protein requirements. Between the crab and the tofu, this was a wonderful way. Great taste. I didn't need it to be an original recipe, who cares? Be adventurous, try something new, and you might be pleasantly suprised!
It's not the same recipe to make the original and authentic crab and asparagus soup. its missing corn starch to have the consistency and thickness and theres no tofu or soysauce in it.
Sounded good, wouldn't make again. Couldn't get anyone in my family to eat this.
I don't think this recipe is close to the authentic Vietnamese Crabmeat and Asparagus soup and this is why it didnt turn out as I expected!
I was really looking forward to a yummy healthy meal but the taste of this soup was VERY DISAPPOINTING! Will not make again.
This is another recipe that should have never happened! It had too much oregano in it & leaves an aftertaste. If you are hungry, don't try this one as it is not a full bodied soup. Guess we will eat pizza today. Sorry! It also smells like ...well you don't want to know! Hubby wants it out of the house. It isn't pretty either.
It's an excellant recipe. The base had a delicate flavor. Everything was balance and delicious.
