The refrigerator light goes on...

Soup nights are the best. In the winter, a hearty soup like this with a salad is all you need to fill up and be warm. A cool Gazpacho or fruit soup in the summer is the perfect way to chill out.

Chilled Watermelon Soup recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 4 cups watermelon (seeded)
  • 1 lb tomatoes (seeded)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 8 leaves fresh basil (chiffonade)

Place the watermelon, tomatoes, lime juice, red pepper, salt and pepper in a blender. Puree.

Pour the soup into a tall pitcher. Place in the freezer. As the soup cools it will form two layers. At the top will be a thicker, dark red soup and below that a clearer watery liquid.

Using a small measuring cup or a turkey baster, gently remove as much of the darker, thicker soup as you can and discard the watery liquid.

Serve well chilled and topped with 1 teaspoon of olive oil (flavored oil works great) and the basil.
