Chilled Summer Soups- cook for your life- anti-cancer recipes
Watermelon Gazpacho with Mint & Feta
Servings: 4
Prep time: 15

Watermelon was one of my big loves when I was on chemo. There’s nothing more refreshing. I’d get it home wash it well, then cut through into the sweetness inside and gorge. This chilled soup is another, totally wonderful way to eat more watermelon. It is a super simple, very un-classic gazpacho soup, and will win you over with its fabulous mix of minty-chilled-salty-creamy-sweet.

Preparation

1. In a food processor, pulse watermelon, tomatoes, mint, pepper, agave, and salt for about one minute. Do not over process – the soup should have small pieces of watermelon visible. Pour into a bowl and stir in the reserved watermelon chunks if you have kept them aside. Chill in the refrigerator.

2. Ladle into bowls and garnish with feta and chopped mint.

Ann's Tips and Tricks

Depending on the ripeness of your watermelon you may need to add a few more agave, a teaspoon at a time.
