Traditionally this classic Spanish soup is made from tomatoes, peppers, and other salad vegetables. The watermelon adds a subtle sweetness
300g watermelon, seeded and cubed
1 bulb of fennel, trimmed and finely sliced
1 cucumber, peeled, deseeded and cut into dice*
Good handful of mint leaves*
300g fresh cherry tomatoes
1 tin cherry tomatoes, drained (keep liquid)
120ml olive oil
1-2 slices of white bread, crusts thinly removed
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Feta cheese to garnish
*Keep some aside for garnish
Soak the bread in the juice from the tin of tomatoes and set aside.
Place all the other ingredients in a blender. Add the bread and tomato juice. Season well with salt and pepper.
Process until chunky smooth. Check the seasoning and garnish with crumbled feta, chopped mint and diced cucumber.
