Also gave 3 stars because by itself it would be a little bland. As a base for cream of crab soup it is perfect, and that's exactly what i was looking for. I added a TON of stuff: Cayenne, creole, lemon thyme, fresh purple basil, old bay, zesty seasoned salt with a hint of lime in place of regular salt, celery seed, red pepper, (if you haven't noticed, I like my soups SPICY!) I wish i would have had celery to add but i didnt, I didn't really add any other vegetables besides the onions.
For the meat I loaded it up and used about a lb of imitation crab, a lb of jumbo lump crab drained with a little juice left and added to the soup, and 3 small pieces of tilapia i sauteed, and flaked up in a pan were added to the soup.
I also added a dash of reisling wine.
Anyways this is an awesome base so use it and get creative, make what you like!
