Watermelon Gazpacho (with Feta) for One

Say YES to this watermelon soup in the summer, it’s so refreshing – naturally light and sweet-spicy and hydrating – a good way to “eat” your water. The cucumber and watermelon in the recipe are loaded with water (96% water and almost 93% water respectively) which makes it no surprise the pair up are actually botanic siblings.

No-Crust Tomato Pie – Lower Carb, Gluten-free

Crustless Tomato Pie is a low-carb spin on one of my favorite southern dishes. Such a yummy way to use up a bumper crop of sweet, ripe tomatoes. Most southern tomato pies have a pastry crust, but I personally like mine without! Tomatoes tend to get watery and seep all over a crust and make it unpleasantly soggy, especially you have leftovers. But a crustless tomato tart or pie doesn’t have nearly the same issue.
