Honeydew Soup with Basil and Honey Soup Recipe

Honeydew Soup with Basil and Honey Soup Recipes

Ingredients :



1 tablespoon

ripe honeydew melon



fresh basil leaves (or mint leaves)

Method :
  1. Cut the melon in half and scoop out the seeds.

  2. Cut the halves into slices and cut off the rind with a paring knife, letting the flesh and juices fall directly into the work bowl of the food processor or blender.

  3. Squeeze the lemon juice into the melon flesh, catching the seeds with either a strainer or your hands.

  4. Add the honey.

  5. Rinse 2 to 3 basil leaves and add them.

  6. Pulse the mixture until smooth.

  7. Taste and add additional honey if desired.

  8. If serving immediately, pour into bowls, adding an ice cube to each bowl if desired, and garnish with additional basil leaves.

Serves 2-4

This light and tangy fruit soup is amazingly simple and makes a refreshing first course for a summer dinner, although it's not a meal in itself. The hint of fresh basil adds complexity and depth to the simple melon flavor; but if basil seems too unusual to your palate, substitute fresh mint. Make sure your melon is perfectly ripe, tending toward over- rather than under ripe. Garnish with a dollop of plain yogurt if desired.
