Watermelon Gazpacho



printer friendly

serves 4

Prep time , fairly quick

Ingredients :
4 cups Watermelon
4 medium tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 jalapeno pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped basil strips
Juice of 3 limes
1 teaspoons salt
3 chopped green onions


1. Chop the watermelon into cubes. The tomatoes I cut one up in a find dice and put in a small measuring cup. This will be for the chunks that go into the soup. The rest I put in a large stainless bowl to get ready to puree. I did the same with the cucumber cutting about 1 / 4 of the cucumber for the small chunks and the rest with the puree bowl. The jalapeno I chopped fine with chunks as well as the green onion. The basil I cut chiffonade and place in a small bowl and the limes ready to squeeze.

2. Puree the ingredients

Put the puree back in the stainless bowl.

Now do the same with the watermelon

Then add to the stainless bowl.


Next add the small chunks to the bowl and blend

Add the Lime juice to the mix. I liked about 3 limes but you can do this to taste. Also add some salt, the basil strips and some red pepper sauce if you like it spicy.

Lemons are a good substitute.

Chill for several hours and serve. Some vegetable spears like cucumber, green onion make a nice presentation.
