watermelon gazpacho
Prep time
Total time
This recipe is best when not following fast rules. You should make it to taste. It will depend on how sweet the watermelon is and how perfectly ripened the tomatoes are.
: vegan, soup, summer
Serves: 8
  • 3 cups watermelon puree
  • 2 cups watermelon, finely chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cups fresh tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • ¼ cup green or orange pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, green and white, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice and zest from the lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon diced jalapeƱo pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic, minced then mashed into a paste with salt, using the flat side of a knife
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Gently mix all the ingredients.
  2. You can puree in small batches until smooth or serve it as is, chunky. I prefer the later and use colorful tomatoes and nasturtium as garnish.
