Raw Vegan Recipes – Watermelon Gazpacho

It’s recipe Friday again and today’s recipe is all about the summer, this week we chose something fresh and hydrating since it’s so sunny outside. For this hot summer an easy classic with a twist from Sandra Cline Living.

2 cups of fresh cubed watermelon

1/2 cup of Serrano Chile

1 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds

2 tablespoons of fresh Chopped green onions

A pinch of Himalayan salt

A pinch Cayenne pepper

1/2 cucumber

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon of agave

1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh dill

In a blender puree half of the watermelon, the Serrano pepper, half of the cucumber and half of the dill. Add the vinegar, oil and agave, mix well.

Once is ready add the pomegranate seeds, the rest of the watermelon. Along with the green onions and dill, chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes, serve on a bowl.

During the summer it’s important to get hydrated and with the ingredients in

This recipe we can easily achieve that.

Watermelon is super alkaline, mostly water, with loads of fiber, enzymes and high in vitamin C.

Cucumber is also mostly water and is part of the watermelon family it also offers cardiovascular supports and it has cancer fighting properties and high in vitamin K.

The pomegranate seeds are considered a super food, filled with protein, high fiber content, folate, vitamin C, Vitamin K. The number one reason to consume this fruit is due to its powerful antiinflammatory effects. 

Dill gives it a fresh flavor to this dish and it aids with digestion and to keep the breath fresh. Also it has anti-bacterial properties as well, it has the potential to help prevent bone mass loss.

The cayenne pepper contrary to what most people believe has the ability to ease up an upset stomach, and ulcers. It also clears congestions due to colds, flu or allergies.  Finally, the number one reason I love to use this spice is because of it digestive properties, because it increases the flow of enzymes and gastric juices in the digestive track.

Himalayan salt is what we prefer to use in our recipes due to its healing properties, it helps regulate water levels in the body, promotes stable ph balance and it supports healthy sleeping patterns just to mention a few.

Also keeping the ingredients raw it gives more potency to this already mighty meal. I hope you like this recipe and that perhaps you learned at least one thing.
