Watermelon Gazpacho

RECIPES – SOUPS, VEGAN

Watermelon Gazpacho = Summer in a Bowl

Watermelon gazpacho is a refreshing twist on the classic cold summer soup recipe. It’s a perfect appetizer for a summer soiree as it’s easy to make ahead and has to be chilled anyway. Plus, hello, it’s absolutely gorgeous! Just look at all that lycopene! (a.k.a the super powerful antioxidant that gives watermelon its rosy red hue and it’s anti-aging benefits).

This version has a nice little kick thanks to chile pepper, and the sweetness of the watermelon is balanced by the lime juice.

It comes together quickly, you simply throw everything in a blender…my favorite type of recipe!
