About Melon and Watermelon Soup Recipe

Who said that soup should be: 1.Hot 2.Spiced 3.Made with only vegetables/meat 4.Simmered with stock – vegetable.meat 5.Cooked till thick Thinking beyond the normal soup making,I opted for a soup with fruit.In the hot summers we crave cool recipes and cannot eat much of carbohydrates.For people like me,I am averse to anything hot.This soup was the successful implementation of merging simple summer fruits and juices into a medley so lovely that I could not have enough of this! I also made this recipe exclusively for adults using sweet wine for a Champagne party for one of my friends.As I did not attend the party I got rave reviews for the version and so am sharing the same here as well.

How to make Melon and Watermelon Soup

  1. With a melon baller tool, scoop out the melon and watermelon balls. Keep them in the refrigerator.
  2. In a blender, combine the grapes, orange and pineapple juices. Blend till well amalgamated. Strain through a soup strainer.
  3. Wash the blender jar well and pour the strained liquid into it again. Now add the honey, few mint leaves and saffron. Blend it once again.
  4. Pour into ramekins or soup bowls. Float the melon and watermelon balls in the soup and top with more mint leaves and pomegranate pearls.
  5. Serve chilled for best taste.

My Tip:

For the exotic version: Juice of 1 Grapefruit 50 ml sweet wine – Used in place of Pineapple Juice 100 gms Red Currants – Used in place of Grapes Blend everything and present the soup as before. NOTE – Do not use Wine for parties where children are invited.
