Too hot to cook

Written by The Thyroid Chronicles on July 15, 2010 – 8:09 pm -

It’s hot. You don’t want to turn on your oven, your stove, or even your toaster. (Or, you’re like me and you’re painting your house and everything from the living room is in the kitchen, so you can’t reach the stove anyway.)

What do you do? Do you get takeout, which means spending a lot of dosh and feeling like bag full of assholes afterward?

OR do you make like Smarty McSmartersons, dust off your food processor/blender, and whip up a batch of cantaloupe carrot gazpacho in less than 5 minutes?

1/2 cantaloupe
1 medium sized carrot
Handful soaked almonds/cashews
Freshly grated ginger (to taste – I added a lot)
1 T of lemon/lime juice

These ingreds are also in the original recipe, but I didn’t have coconut milk handy and I killed my mint plant:
2 T of coconut milk
1/2 bunch of fresh mint leaves (to taste)

I like Smarty’s choice.

cooling delicious "soup"

Eat this in the comfort of your air conditioned home.
