1. Melt butter in a large stock pot.over medium heat. Add the olive oil and bring it up to heat.

2. Add the onions, bell pepper and celery. Saute for about 5 minutes, until the onions become transparent.

4. Add the cauliflower & corn kernels. Season the veggies with the Old Bay seasoning and salt. Saute about 3 minutes to heat everything up.

5. Add the wine to deglaze the pan. Scrape any bits from the bottom. Add the chicken stock and bring to a low boil.

6. Add the cream cheese cubes and stir them into the veggie mixture until they are melted and incorporated into the liquid. (the more cream cheese you add, the thicker it will be)

7. Add the half and half, the crab and the bay leaf.

8. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes stirring regularly. You can cover it if you want, but the evaporation will also help it to thicken up.

Serve with chopped green onions and a little hot sauce.
