Chilled Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup

Chilled Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup
Recipe Type: Soup
Author: Foodieaholic
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup canned low-sodium plum tomatoes
  • ¼ cup low-sodium tomato puree
  • 1 cup chopped watermelon (seedless)
  • ½ teaspoon chopped garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest *
  • 1 tablespoon basil, chiffonade (cut into thin strips)
  • Garnish: Four sprigs of fresh basil
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend well.
  2. Chill. Before serving, garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh basil.
Notes
* Using a grater or microplane, shave off the peel of an orange to make ½ teaspoon of shavings. The shavings are your zest, which add strong, wonderfully citrus flavor to foods. Use only the colored part of the peel, not the bitter white pith beneath.
