Good morning and welcome to Biscotti & Bracelets.
It has been a long hot summer here in Florida. Thankfully, I have found some recipes to help me keep my cool.

Chilled Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup 

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

Procedure:

  1. Using a grater or microplane, shave off the peel of an orange to make ½ teaspoon of shavings
  2. The shavings are your zest, which add strong, wonderfully citrus flavor to foods
  3. Use only the colored part of the peel, not the bitter white pith beneath

Preparation:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Blend well.
  2. Chill.  Before serving, garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh basil.
