Hi, I'm Linda from www.LivingLinda.com and today I'm going to make spicy watermelon soup.
So come along with me.
OK, I have 1/4 of a watermelon that I got from my local store called Continente.
It was about €1.24 for this.
I'm only gonna use about half of it for the watermelon soup, and then I'm going to use the other half to make watermelon juice.
So I'm just going to cut this watermelon and then cut it into cubes.
This watermelon actually has some seeds in it.
I haven't found seedless watermelon here in Lisbon yet.
I'll be picking out the seeds as I chop along.
OK, to the bowl of cubed watermelon, I'm going to add the watermelon juice.
And that was about the third of the watermelon that I put into the blender.
Going to add about a tablespoon of lime juice.
Then to make it spicy, I'm going to be using jalapeno.
I don't have a fresh jalapeno, so I'm going to just use the dried jalapeno that I have.
And I'm using about 1/4 of a teaspoon.
You can use more or less depending on how spicy you like things, and then I'm going to add a dash of pepper.
And then to this I'm also going to add some crunch, so I'm going to use cucumber and radishes today.
You could also use jicama.
So I'm just going to thinly slice this cucumber.
I mean, sorry, this radish.
And then chop it into quarters.
And add it to my bowl.
And the same thing for this cucumber.
I'm only going to use about half.
And I'm going to save the peels cause I'll make either cucumber juice or some sort of facial mask with honey and cucumber.
Again, I'm just going to dice this.
Now that everything is in the bowl, I'm just going to give it a good stir to mix everything up.
And this is so nice to have on a hot summer's day.
I've been craving this lately.
So I have to go and get the watermelon so I could make it here today.
OK, so I'm going to put it, excuse me, I'm going to put it in the refrigerator to set for a couple of hours so that all of the juices and flavors can meld together.
And it's so delicious on a hot summer's day.
I hope you try it and let me know if you do.
