Cantaloupe Gazpacho

Cantaloupe Gazpacho

In honor of summer and our new look šŸ™‚ I’m sharingĀ one of my favorite recipes and memories that I’ve held onto for a few years. Ā I learned to make this soup at my very first internship in a kitchen. When I tastedĀ it, I never forgot the delicious sweet yet complex taste it had.Ā Summer always deserves a delicious cold soup, especially when it’s 100+ degrees out.

Thinking back, I was helping the Chef de Cuisine prepare thisĀ soupĀ for his appearance on the Deborah Duncan Show. We went back stage, he got a little make up and hair action and I waited patiently as his assistant. Once he was on, I anxiously waited backstage, watching on the small tv to see the hosts reaction. She loved it! I felt honored to be invited to be his assistant as I was just the noviceĀ intern in hisĀ tiny kitchen.

Anyone can make it, it’s really simple. This soup is indeed raw so watch out all of you special dieters. This is an extremely healthy soup chalk full of veggies! Ā If you want to add a protein, shredded chicken is the perfect match. You can see how I made it below!

Instructions
  1. Cut up all ingredients into small pieces, a rough chop
  2. Pulse all fruit and veggies in a food processor. I suppose a vitamix would work well too.
  3. While blending, slowly pour the olive oil and sherry until blended well.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Once finished, taste to double check the flavor. It may need a bit more sherry vinegar.
  6. Bon Appetit!
Recipe Notes

*Feel free to take out a veggie if you're sensitive to it. I tend to go light on the red pepper.
