I found some leftovers!

WooHoo!  I found some crab legs hiding in the fridge. This calls for a celebration and Crab & Corn Chowder.

Here is how it came together:

2 tbsp. butter
1 cup white onions, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, miniced
4 cups red potatoes, diced
3 tbsp. quinoa flour
2 1/2 cups skim milk
2 tsp. fresh thyme
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 3/4 cup corn
1 3/4 cup seafood stock
1 cup crabmeat
3 tbsp. parsley

Melt butter in a large pot.  Add onions, saute for 3 minutes until soft.  Add garlic, saute for a minute, add potatoes and cook for another minute.  Sprinkle flour and stir into vegetables.  Add milk, stock, corn, and seasonings.  Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent potatoes from sticking.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until potatoes are cooked throughly.  Add crabmeat, parsley and salt to season.

And enjoy!
