  1. Pour chicken bone broth into a large soup pot, heating over medium heat. Whisk the tomato paste into the broth, bring to a low bubble, and then turn down to simmer.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the ghee over medium heat. Add the chopped onion to the skillet, and saute for 1 minute.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet, and continue to saute until the onion starts to turn translucent. Once the onion and garlic have softened a bit add the crab meat.
  4. Stir the crab into the onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes to the skillet, and stir to combine all ingredients.
  6. While the crab mixture is cooking, add the cream to the broth, and whisk to combine. Turn the heat up to medium-low.
  7. Once the crab mixture as cooked to combine all of the flavors for about 5 minutes, add the crab mixture to the broth using a slotted spoon to avoid getting excess liquid in the broth.
  8. Turn the heat up to medium/medium-high, so the soup can bubble. Stir the soup, while it bubble for about 5 minutes, then turn the soup down to simmer, and cover leaving the lid cracked.
  9. Simmer the soup for 1 hour, or up to 2 hours, stirring every so often, and then serve.

      This is fantastic. I’ve made it twice, each time with one 16-ounce can, and I love it, especially topped off with a little Old Bay.

        Whipping cream would probably not work so well. However, if you have heavy cream that would be fantastic.

      This was delicious. I had used 3 cans of the canned crab meat and half and half instead and it was still good. Thanks for a great recipe!
