Directions

In a food processor, blend tomatoes until liquid. Add day old bread, basil, thyme and generously season with salt and pepper. If too thick, thin with water. Allow to sit in a cool place.

In a medium mixing bowl, toss crab meat, 2 tablespoons extra virgin oil, juice and zest of 1 lemon, red pepper and scallion gently together and season lightly with salt.

Divide cool tomato soup among 4 bowls. Place 1 slice baguette in center of each bowl. Float 2 ounces crab meat mixture on top of each baguette slice and serve.
