XSG's Recipes: Mid-week Gazpacho Soup

Unless you have refrigeration, any meat you've brought is going to be highly questionable by the 5th or 6th day. Always trust your nose. This recipe uses a few fresh items that do last this long on the playa.

Melon Gazpacho Soup
1 Cantaloupe
1 Honeydew
4 Cans of stewed tomatos, italian style
4 cloves garlic (pre-peel them before you leave for Burning Man and store them in a plastic bag in a dark place)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp ground coriander
a few sprigs of parsley
1 large can of tomato paste
First thing in the morning (once you sober up), start by emptying the can of tomato paste into your large pot.
Dilute the tomato paste with water until it reaches your desired thickness. It should be similar to the consistency of tomato juice.
Mash the cloves of garlic and toss into the pot.
Add coriander to the pot and stir.
Chop parsley, add to pot.
Add lemon juice and stewed tomatos to pot.
Slice melon into 1/2" pieces and toss into the pot.
Mix all ingredients and let sit in a dark, well-ventilated location.
At the hottest time of the day, usually mid-afternoon, serve your soup. It should seem slightly chilled.
