Crab & Shrimp Corn Soup - Under 300 Calories Per Serving!
Cream based soups are some of my favorites . . . they feel rich and decadent. But they are also some of the easiest to reinvent into lower calorie versions. Right now, Alaskan King crab legs are on sale at our grocery store . . . they are actually cheaper per pound than beef. Crazy right? So I grabbed a bag and steamed them up. Typically we dip them in melted butter, but today I decided to create a new, healthy soup recipe with them.
In order to keep the calories low on this recipe, I started with a chicken broth base and 2% skim milk. Just before serving, I stirred in 1/2 cup cream which was just enough to make it feel a little richer.
I helped myself to two bowls, yet felt no remorse!
