Jimmy Mitchell, executive chef at Houston's Rainbow Lodge (#1 Birdcall, 713/861-8666), maintains a garden only steps from the restaurant's kitchen. This is his recipe for delicious, calorie-wise tomato soup.
Rotisserie for Beef and Bird in Houston often pairs this elegant entrée with wild rice. This version is adapted from a recipe that appears in Houston Is Cooking 2000 by Ann Criswell (Houston Gourmet, 1999). Preparation involves flambéing, so be sure to use a skillet without a nonstick finish.
You can substitute frozen corn-on-the-cob for the fresh corn, but the flavor won’t be quite as good.
