#SundaySupper: Farmer’s Market Bounty

I love the challenges that Sunday Supper comes up with.  They are always so inspirational and let me have extra fun playing with our food.

This week I got to make a cold soup  using up tonnes of the treaties that my organic man has been delivering me.

I love gazpacho but we haven’t had it in quite sometime as it usually relies heavily on cucumber.  My FIL has a lot of difficulty with cucumber so I had to come up with a back-up plan.  I also was feeding a friend who doesn’t like tomatoes. 

Hmmm, I was stumped until I spied a big, gorgeous watermelon on my counter.

Watermelon Gazpacho was born.

I started by dicing: watermelon, peppers, zucchini (my stand-in for cucumber), radish and a few cherry tomatoes. These were going to be my garnish but the heavy work was going to be done by my food processor.  

No food processor?  A hand blender would do the job or a blender BUT you might consider picking one up.  I got my at the Goodwill for 10 dollars.  It is an old workhorse and I use it shockingly often.

Fresh herbs, garlic, celery and some spices got whizzed-up to form the base and then LOTS of watermelon.  A little tomato juice as a thickener and a bit of time in the fridge to chill.

We ate it with crusty bread and a few glasses of chilled rose.

A perfect soup for a very hot and muggy night. gazpacho3

  1. Wow such clever use for watermelon, I have to say we don’t often buy watermelon because we find it a bit dull but with recipes like this to use it for I now think I need to go buy some

    • Oh! Hope you love it and a few weeks ago I made a fun cocktail that might spice things up for you too.

  2. I love how you used watermelon as a substitute for cucumber! I’ll have to see if I can try that out with any recipes that have cucumber…

    • I think it should be a good fit for a lot of different things due to the water content. Thanks so much for being the host this week.

  3. I just love it! I bet all of the flavors together are just amazing!!

  4. Love the use of watermelon in your soup! A perfect way to make a refreshing Gazpacho with whatever is handy in season. Yum yum Yum!

  5. I think I might actually like this better than traditional gazpacho! Great idea!

  6. I make a watermelon salsa with similar ingredients…cannot wait to try this!

  7. Now I know what I can do with the watermelon that I have left from my watermelon-feta salad…score! I love chilled soups in Summer, and hub isn’t a big fan of cucumber either.

  8. My sister calls this “wazpacho.” I haven’t made it in years, but your version is tempting me! It looks amazing!

  9. Refreshing and yummy in my tummy

  10. I love gazpacho on a hot summer night. It’s the perfect, refreshing dinner, and I love that you used watermelon as the star. Great idea!!

  11. Wow, your creativity never ceases to surprise me!

  12. The watermelon sounds so refreshing and I bet it adds a nice sweetness to the soup. Awesome recipe!

  13. Never thought of that combo before! It sounds oddly delicious!

    • Oddly delicious is my favourite thing. Actually oddly anything is fab-think Harvey Keitel in his heyday.

  14. Wishing I could eat watermelon (sadly it gives me nausea). However, leaving it out of switching it for the cucumber would still be a wonderful chilled soup.

  15. It give a different twist to the recipe, so delicious, thank you for this new idea.

  16. I’ve never had a watermelon gazpacho before but it sounds delicious!

  17. Oh, my friend! That picture of sun-drenched ingredients in your goodwill food processor made me so so happy. What a gorgeous shot!

    This soup sound so interesting. I’m still not totally sold on cold soups. Might just have to try it and prove myself wrong. And I know that if you’re making it it must be good. :)

  18. we are growing watermelon right now! i want to make this!

  19. I made a watermelon gazpacho earlier this month too but I was lazy and didn’t do the chopping. I just pureed it with my stick blender. Yours looks good.

  20. I love how Sunday Supper always inspires me to create something unique too. Brilliant idea to use watermelon as the base for your gazpacho. I can just imagine how refreshing this tastes!

  21. This watermelon gazpacho is so creative and great for the end of summer. It looks refreshing and delicious!

  22. Such vibrant colors, Jane. Beautiful! Bravo, too, for accommodating both your husband and friend with creative substitutions…I love cucumbers but zucchini is fantastic!

  23. This sounds so refreshing–I’ll bet the sweetness of that watermelon really complements the other flavors!

  24. Love gazpacho I want to try your watermelon version!
