1 cup canned low-sodium plum tomatoes
¼ cup low-sodium tomato puree
1 cup chopped watermelon (seedless)
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon basil, chiffonade (cut into thin strips)
Garnish: Four sprigs of fresh basil
Combine all ingredients in a blender.
Before serving, garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh basil.
To make Zest
Using a grater or microplane, shave off the peel of an orange to make ½ teaspoon of shavings. The shavings are your zest, which add strong, wonderfully citrus flavor to foods. Use only the colored part of the peel, not the bitter white pith beneath.
