Summer is full on here in Malta and it hits me with guilt that I haven’t been writing for 1,5 month. Sorry for that! I’m sure you know these times when things are going crazy with work and private stuff and without knowing time is just flying like a jumbo jet and suddenly 6 weeks have passed. Well, this is what happened to me.
Also, I have to confess, the recent heat here in Malta makes my culinary desire a bit weaker. It’s just too hot to stay at home and experiment in the kitchen and find the pleasure in reading recipes, coming up with new ideas or sitting in front of the laptop for some blogging. All you want to do is finish work and jump in the water.
HOWEVER, it’s time and finally there’s a new dish I just tried out two days ago which I would like to share with you! It’s a cold melon soup, based on a recipe which I found on yummly.com and changed a bit to my own taste. It’s a super quick, very refreshing and unusual taste.
All you need:
- 1 honeydew melon (I’m sure also sugar melon is fine)
- coconut milk (not the thick one from the cans but the one which comes in a milk carton)
- 1 lemon
- bit of ginger (depending on taste)
- lemon pepper
What to do:
Peel and chop melon, get rid of all seeds, squeeze juice of a lemon, finely chop the peeled ginger and throw everything in a food processor. (If you have different attachments use the one which you normally take for making smoothies. ) Add salt depending on taste, some lemon pepper , whizz and taste how you like it. When ready put it in nice glasses and serve it as a light and cooling dinner with some oat crackers or as a starter of a light menu.
