Red Pepper Crab Soup is rated out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Karol from Amazing with a few tweaks I just received my Vitamix today and wanted to try a savory soup first. I tweaked this recipe by adding garlic and white wine while sauteed the onions. When adding the crab, I also added some homemade roasted red bell peppers to add some texture to the soup. To finish it at serving time, I added Lawry's course garlic salt with parsley and some fresh cracked white pepper to season and sprinkled some parmesan on top....absolutely amazing!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ed M from Amazing soup East to make and a genuine gourmet taste at home. As good as any restaurant soup, anywhere. Highly recommended with or without crab added.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ed M from Fantastic gourmet taste Great taste, simple to make. One of the best. Nice pepper taste along with the crab. It would be just as good without or another seafood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaJe from Not appetizing! The Red Pepper Crab Soup was not appetizing. Actually following the directions it tasted very bland. Even after tweeking the recipe the only way I could bring taste to it was adding a good white wine in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shertel from Yummy Unfortunately I missed the "roasted" red peppers. I used raw and this made it less flavorful. It would be nice if it said in the instructions to roast the red peppers. Just like it said to sautee the onions. Overall great though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vitamixer TJ from Not good. Didn't care for this at all. It's hard to make anything with crab not good, but the soup was sort of sweet, just not very good.
