Hi it's LLance from Keep Live Tasty and I'm going to make a smoked watermelon gazpacho with just a touch of a couple of really fresh ingredients. I've got my watermelon here and I'm going to cut it all up. I add my watermelon to a really hot grill. I sear it just enough to get the grill marks on there and a little bit of smoke.
Now I've got my grilled watermelon here that I just took off the grill. I'm going to make a small amount right now but we'll take a few of these slices and but them into here. We want to keep one or two for a garnish that I will put on a little later. That's a little blender. It's a very small blender. We've got some mint that we took out of our garden. I'm going to cut up a little bit of the mint. It's going to get blended together. We'll also use a little bit for our garnish. I've got a lime that I'm going to squeeze part of into this. Since I'm only using a little bit of the lime for this.
I'm not going to use the whole lime but I'm just going to use part of the lime. That's a big lime. It is a big lime.We also added a quarter of a cup of rice wine vinegar and a quarter of a cup of water. [Blending noises].
We're going to take about half a teaspoon of our smoked watermelon salt. That's going to be our seasoning- a little bit of spicy, a little bit of salty, and a lot of flavor. [Blending noises]. Now for the gazpacho we're going to add just a bit of chunkiness to it because we don't want it to just be a soup. We are going to serve this cold. What I'm doing is I'm going to dice some cucumber.
We've got a fig that we've just pulled out of the yard so we're going to add some fig to this as well- so delicious.
I'm going to take this now. When we serve it, we want to serve a little bit of this together in the bowl. Then what you do is pour this over the top and add a little bit of mint and maybe a little more lime like that. If you want, another dash of this watermelon salt for flavor. There you go. That looks delicious. Smoked watermelon gazpacho.
