She Crab Soup
A wonderful vegan and fat-free version of the famous Charleston soup.
Chef's Notes: For a more authentic soup, you may substitute vegan cream for the non-dairy milk. Some restaurants in Charleston also incorporate a chopped stalk of celery in the soup, which you can add with the mushrooms. Tabasco is the brand of hot sauce most commonly used in She Crab Soup (and Southern cooking in general), but any vegan hot sauce will do. Finally, you want to use a good quality sherry, not cooking sherry, here and be careful with the white pepper - it has a more powerful kick than black pepper.
