This Summer Watermelon Gazpacho is exactly what you need on a hot summer day. So refreshing and packed with flavor.
It is healthy and so easy to make, just put all the ingredients in a blender and you are done!
It is a perfect light lunch or party appetizer served in small glasses. A great way to make use of that giant watermelon you probably have sitting in your fridge.
This soup tastes best served cold and after all the flavors blend. So let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours or even better, make it the day before for a no stress meal the next day. Jut take it out of the fridge, pore and enjoy!
Stay cool in the summer heat!
- 600 g seedless watermelon, cubed
- 1 tomato
- 1 red pepper, seeds removed and cut in big chunks
- 2 stalks of celery, sliced
- ½ cucumber, cubed
- 1 small shallot
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 red chili
- 1 lime, juiced
- handful of fresh basil
- 1 tablespoon good quality olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Reserve a little of the veggies for topping and chop finely, put aside.
Add all the ingredients to a blender except salt and pepper.
Blend until decided consistency, I like my gazpacho quite creamy. Add salt end pepper to taste.
Let the gazpacho sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours for the flavors to develop. Serve cold and top with the reserved veggies and a few drops of olive oil.
