This recipe is higher in sodium. If you're on a low sodium diet, you might consider another option.

The original version of this recipe from Bon Apetit was high in saturated fat and salt. By making a couple simple changes we've kept all the good taste while eliminating the rest.

1. Heat a large non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Once it's hot, lightly coat the pan with olive oil spray. Add the scallions, lemongrass and chile. Cook until the vegetables soften, about 3 or 4 minutes. Then add the tomatoes and cook for another 5-6 minutes until they're softened.

2. Stir in the water, herb ox, coconut water, orange juice and fish sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until the flavors combine, about 15 minutes. Turn the burner off and let it cool down for about 5 minutes.

3. Transfer batches of the soup to the blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute each. Mix everything together and stir in the lime juice.

4. Divide into 6 servings and top each one with equal amounts of crabmeat and snow peas.

5. You can serve this soup hot or cold, it's delicious either way.
