Roasted Tomato Dill Soup with Lump Crab

Jump To Recipe

Several months ago on one of my many trips up to the hills of South Carolina and North Carolina, I stopped at a little pub in Landrum, SC called the Hare and Hound for lunch.  There was tomato soup on the menu this particular day, amped up with fresh dill that was so incredibly good, I got a big container of tomato dill soup to take home and eat for dinner the same night.  Tomato soup is one of my favorites.  There are tons of things you can add to it or top it with to spice it up and it’s the perfect vehicle for dipping a cheesy grilled cheese into.  Nothing fancy, just pure comfort!

It’s freezing in South Carolina today, so I made my own version of the Hare and Hound’s tomato dill soup to keep me warm through this frigid weather we’re having.  I roasted the tomatoes to intensify their flavor and added a huge handful of fresh chopped dill.  Instead of stopping there, I threw a little mound of lump crap meat on top and mixed it in.  Absolutely delicious and warming from head to toe!

    Love the idea of lump crab in tomato soup, and soup would be so perfect on a chilly day like this. I just wish I had better luck finding good lump crab in the Upstate. Any suggestions on where to get it?

    Thanks Laura! In all honesty, I got the lump crab for this recipe at publix.;) I usually buy it at Whole Foods, but also try Key West Connection on Parkins Mill Rd. It sits just behind Fowlers Pharmacy on Laurens Rd. Hope this helps! Have a great weekend!
