Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, sauté onion, celery, and carrots in coconut oil until tender. Add garlic, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dry red wine, black pepper, parsley flakes, basil flakes, and Old Bay. Saute for 5 minutes.
  2. Add beef broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and water.
  3. Stir, bring to a boil, and add vegetables. Continue simmering at medium heat until vegetables are done to your liking. Add more Old Bay to taste as it simmers. (We love Old Bay so the MORE the BETTER.)
  4. Finally, add crab meat, being careful not to break up the chunks. Heat through and serve. ENJOY!
Recipe Notes

This soup tastes delicious reheated after chilling in the frig overnight to infuse the flavors!

Always check for FfL-friendly ingredients.

We recommend wild-caught seafood and organic ingredients when feasible.
