Cantaloupe Soup

(Gluten-Free, Gout-Friendly)

Cantaloupe soup

This is a picture-pretty first course for a summer meal. Make in advance and serve chilled.

Ingredients

  • 2 cantaloupes

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream, plus 4 teaspoons for garnish

Directions

Cut cantaloupes in half. Remove seeds. With a spoon or melon baller, remove fruit from flesh. Refrigerate rinds to use as soup "bowls." Put melon into blender with sour cream and spices. Blend to a creamy consistency. Refrigerate for at least an hour to chill soup and let flavors blend. Pour soup into melon bowls and swirl in a teaspoon of sour cream as a garnish.
