Watermelon-Pomegranate Soup with Mint and Feta
Recipe: Watermelon-Pomegranate Soup with Mint and Feta

Ingredients

  • 6 pounds red watermelon; seeds removed if not seedless, and cut into hunks (approx. 9 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 12 ounces plain yogurt (I prefer Fage)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta (6 tablespoons)

Instructions

  1. Dice a portion of the watermelon to yield one cup. In a small bowl, combine diced watermelon with mint and set aside.
  2. In batches, blend remaining watermelon, pomegranate molasses and yogurt until smooth. Let sit 1/2 hour at room temperature. With a sieve, strain soup. (The soup may be refrigerated several hours before serving at this point.)
  3. When ready to serve, divide among bowls. Garnish each bowl of soup with reserved watermelon-mint and feta. Serve.

Time: 30 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 8-9 cups
