During the warm summer months, there is almost nothing better to cool down than a refreshing cold soup.
By Joana Mendes
Cold soups have been in high rotation around here, and this Watermelon Gazpacho was the last one I’ve made (next on the list is a vegetarian version of Borscht). If you’re looking for a summery and refreshing soup I encourage you to give this one a try – the sweet flavor of the watermelon is balanced with the addition of tomatoes, cucumber and onion, making for a delicate and light soup. As far as garnishes go, you can certainly play around a bit: corn kernels were what I add on hand this time around, but I bet homemade croutons would be equally good. Enjoy!Print
