Recipe

Just kind of fooling around one day with some underripe mango and pineapple, I came up with this recipe, one of my all-time favorites. It uses a principle common in tropical regions, treating underripe fruits as vegetables. Here I combine tomato juice with papaya and lime juice for a unique and crisp summer soup.

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 6 cups canned tomato juice
  • 1 cup canned papaya juice (you may substitute pineapple)
  • 2 medium green or underripe mangoes or papayas, diced small
  • ½ medium pineapple, peeled, cored, and diced small
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced small
  • ½ green bell pepper, diced small
  • ½ cup lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 4 dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Directions

Combine the tomato and papaya juice in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, stir a few times, cover, and allow to stand in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours—4 to 6 is best—before serving.
