This was a refreshing melon soup my friend Jennifer prepared for our cookout! It was delicious on a summer day and so easy to make…
recipe from Global Gourmet
1 (3-pound) honeydew or other melon
1-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1-1/2 tablespoons sour cream or crème fraîche
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Cut melon in half and discard seeds. Scoop out flesh. Chop enough melon into small pieces to measure 1/2 cup and reserve.
In 2 batches, purée large pieces of melon in a blender or food processor until smooth, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in chopped melon and chill.
Stir soup, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with sour cream and basil.
