FROM BEV'S RECIPE BOX

I've mentioned my friend Beverly in earlier blogs and just to remind you she has been my co-conspirator on many culinary occasions. We both love good food and our husbands (Don and Gerald) just sit back and reap the benefits when we get "inspired." We've done our little fresh corn on the cobb booth at various functions at Charlie Daniels Park. We serve the corn with our home made gourmet butters and have had a lot of fun and what has turned out to be quite the successful little food booth. We call it "EAR-risistable" cause we're just so damn clever. I look forward to the warm days again and our butter-filled afternoons. I'll keep you posted on any upcoming dates.
Back to Bev and her recent contribution to the COMFORTCOOK blog........Inspired by Publix, Beverly tweaked this recipe to make it her own and the result is a creamy, delicious and light soup. Personally, I'm surprised there isn't a potato in it as I well know "POTATO" is Beverly's favorite food "group." Gotta love a gal who appreciates the staying power of starch! Anyway, try this recipe cause I know it will become a favorite. And to Bev from me and all the foodies who will be trying your delicious soup recipe, we say "Thank You Dahlink!" comfortcook@gmail.com

BEV'S CAULIFLOWER & CRAB SOUP

1 head fresh cauliflower(or 2 pkgs frozen)
1 small sweet onio or 1/4 large
1 can Mexicorn
2 small cans Bumble Bee white crab meat
2 cans low sodium chicken broth
2 cups of Half and Half (Bev uses organic)
1 tbsp dill weed
fresh minced garlic (to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste

In soup pot: saute onion and garlic in a little butter and olive oil. Add chicken broth and cauliflower. Cook till tender. Break up the chunks of cauliflower. (Do not puree..just break it down a little.) This gives the soup its nice consistency. Drain and add: Mexicorn and crab. Then add half and half and seasonings. (Note Bev adds about 2 tbsp of flour to thicken soup a little.
TIP:You could also add the flour to the sauteed onion, garlic, oil and butter to make a roux, then in a separate pot, cook your cauliflower in the broth, then drain and add to the roux mixture and add corn, half and half and seasonings.

Beverly suggests you serve this soup with a salad (romaine or spinach) topped with fresh fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries, chopped pecans, avacado slices and thin red onion slices. A Raspberry Vinagrette is the perfect way to dress this salad.
