Cantaloupe Soup

"Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Unlike other cantaloupe soups, this has a touch of white wine. I also like the way it's served, with contrasting red watermelon balls. Vegan if whipped cream is omitted. From a cookbood of foods along the Danube, this recipe comes from Yugoslavia. I have not tried this yet."

  1. I made this for brunch today, it was simple and easy to make and my friends liked it a lot. It had a refreshing taste and we served it in port wine classes, as a shooter. It could easily be served as a shot for a larger party or tasting menu.
  2. made for zwt4... i didnt exactly make it right because i dont drink wine and i didnt have fresh oranges or lemons. but i did put in some orange juice with some white grape juice to substiute the white wine... i was pretty good. but i think i would just rather eat cantaloupe by itself.
  3. I quartered this recipe just to try it, for the Zaar World Tour. Absolutely delicious – a wonderful blend of flavours - and very elegant. It would be so refreshing on a hot day. In addition to the cantaloupe that was blended, I made some cantaloupe balls, and added these with the watermelon balls. I garnished mine with a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt. Just loved the wine in it; I used moselle. Yum, yum! Thank you for sharing this recipe, Kumquat!


<p>Clockwise from upper left, my dear friends Cranberry, Quincy, Kumquat and Kiwi. All of our cats were born in the wild and adopted by us. Zaar Chefs I have met so far: Elmotoo, justcallmeToni, ~Rita~, Midwest Maven, Bird&amp;Buddha (both of them) and most recently, Ms*Bindy from upstate New York:) Wonderful, sweet, friendly people and great chefs! Most relevant thing to mention here is that I am a vegetarian, and recently became a&nbsp;vegan&nbsp;(almost 100%). To put vegetables and other things not meat or fish on the table I work as an actuary (in my case anyway, a combination of statistician, number-cruncher and/or programmer). For fun I like to travel. Just came back from&nbsp;Namibia, a peaceful democracy in Africa with lots of animals! Got some terrific pictures of lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, rhinocerous, hyenas, all kinds of antelopes, giraffes and zebras. Namibia is the second most sparsely populated country per square mile, just behind Mongolia. Update:&nbsp; We went to Italy this Spring.&nbsp; We had lots of pizza and pasta.&nbsp; The pizza is so much better in Italy, particularly the crust.&nbsp; The Amalfi coast was absolutely beautiful.&nbsp; Spectacular natural scenery (Canada and Alaska are really beautiful, Patagonia in Chile is sublime, Iceland is unique) has been my latest passion as far as travel destinations but I have seen quite a few big cities too (Paris, Berlin, London and Madrid to name a few). On my bulletin board at work I keep a list of every country I've visited (other than the U.S. of course). So far I've made it to five continents: Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and North America of course. I've got only two other continents to conquer:) I don't usually have difficulty finding vegetarian dishes here in the U.S. or overseas, but finding vegan dishes is much harder. I have no kids, just cats, Kumquat, Cranberry, and more recently Quincy and Kiwi. They are purebreds, of the breed alley caticus (okay, American shorthair I guess). Our cats are not vegetarians, though my boyfriend (significant other, long-term partner, whatever) is. I am a friend of all animals both tamed and wild. In addition I am a freethinker and my boyfriend studies philosophy. Either way, we get along pretty well.&nbsp; Also, please allow me to say that my BF and I recently bought a condominium in NYC.:)&nbsp; Pet peeve? Okay, I don't like public scenes, especially parents yelling at their children, lovers' spats, etc. If it must be done please do it in private:D Participation &amp; Awards:</p>
