Crab and Asparagus Soup

I got this recipe from an Indonesian woman magazine which I do not know when it was published. Infact I have just teared and kept it for years 😉 Due to practically reason this recipe has been modified. In original recipe stated, I shall use broth, in my practice I use normal water. And I also add garlic to satisfy my taste. The result is superb!! 😉


  • Put the water in a deep saucepan and bring to boil.
  • Heat 1 tbsp butter in a frying pan, stir fry the onion and garlic. Stirring all the time until fragrant.
  • Add the crab meat, pepper and salt. Stir until the crab well cooked.
  • Transfer the mixed crab to the deep saucepan. Add the asparagus.
  • Pour in the beaten egg over it and stir quickly to scramble.
  • Add the corn flour water and stir until thicken. Serve hot as common light soup (in Indonesia) or heavy menu with baguette/French bread.
