    this is a recipe i got from a slimming world magazine a few years ago, and its another of my favourites, and easy and quick


    tin of crabmeat or fresh crab is better
    tin of sweetcorn
    2 egg whites
    chicken or veg stock
    tablespoon of cornflour
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    dash of milk

    make stock in big pot, bring to boil then simmer
    add sweetcorn ( i use 2 veg stock cubes or veg bouillion)

    meanwhile
    put crab and ginger in bowl and mix together with cornflour and milk

    then add this mix to the stock pot.

    simmer for 10 mins

    whisk the egg whites till quite frothy and then add to simmering stock pot, stir in.

    simmer for another couple of mins

    serve soup. with some chopped spring onions floating ontop

    Sounds lovely, one of my favourites but it's never occured to me that I could make it. Do you know if it comes out clear like having it in a Chinese restaurant ? Not that I can have it just yet anyway, still in foodpack world. Might make it for OH though!
