Watermelon gazpacho - a vegetarian, vegan and raw recipe

Licensed to About.com, Inc
This recipe uses watermelon instead of tomato for an unusual twist to traditional Spanish cold gazpacho soup. Served chilled, watermelon gazpacho is refreshing as an appetizer or on a hot day. The flavor is a little bit sweet and a little bit salty - it's unusual,but I've served this recipe to dozens of friends and most people are really quite impressed! This is also a raw food recipe.

Like cold soups and gazpachos? Here's more vegetarian and vegan cold summer soups.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • approx 3 cups of watermelon, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno (or to taste)
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley or cilantro
  • dash salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

In a blender or food processor, place about half of the watermelon, cucumber, pepper, and onion and all of the jalapeno. Add olive oil and lemon juice and puree until smooth.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Add to pureed ingredients and stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper, to taste.

Chill for at least one hour, to allow flavors to combine, and stir well before serving.

Serve chilled and enjoy!

Delicious, Guest Sam

I've never been a big fan of gazpacho, a little too much like eating a big bowl of salsa for my taste. But this is delicious, the extra sweetness from the watermelon makes this a refreshing and unique dish. I used the last of the watermelon for this and I am getting another one and more cilantro tomorrow, can't wait to make it again.
