Watermelon Gazpacho [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Watermelon is one of my favourite things to eat in the summer, but I was looking for a way to spice it up for the upcoming long weekend. Instead of using watermelon in the same old way (sliced up, or in fruit salad, etc.) I decided to make it the starring character in a savoury recipe. This gazpacho can be whipped up in a flash, so it's perfect for serving at your last Summer barbecue this weekend. It also presents beautifully, whether you decide to serve it in bowls or in shot glasses for a unique appetizer. The sweetness of the watermelon balances perfectly with the little kick from the serrano pepper and the flavourful boost of fresh herbs.
