Watermelon gazpacho

Jodi Pudge


  • 6 cups roughly chopped seedless watermelon, (about 1/4 of a medium watermelon)

  • 3 cups roughly chopped tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 4 tbsp chopped cilantro, divided

  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta

  • salt, to taste

  • black pepper, to taste


  • In a small bowl, reserve ½ cup watermelon. Place remaining watermelon, tomatoes, shallots, oil, vinegar and 2 tbsp of cilantro in a food processor or blender (you might need to do it in 2 batches depending on how big your machine is). Purée until very smooth.

  • With a large bowl underneath, pour the mixture through a mesh strainer, using a ladle to stir and push through as much of the liquid as possible. Discard the pulp left in the strainer. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Add 2 tbsp of cilantro to the bowl of reserved watermelon; mix together. Pour soup into bowls and garnish with the watermelon-cilantro mixture and a pinch of crumbled feta and serve.
