HEAT canola oil in large, nonstick wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms; cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomatoes; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.

STIR in soup mix and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil. Add crabmeat; bring to a second boil. Turn off heat. Stir soup in one direction with a chopstick or fork and slowly pour in the beaten egg so the egg forms long threads.
