Stone Soup Recipe - As a prelude to making this recipe with your kids, read aloud Marcia Brown's STONE SOUP(Simon & Schuster Children's). It tells the story of three hungry soldiers who come into a village and cleverly trick the peasants into sharing their food--by making a lavish soup out of seemingly nothing but stones. Like the soldiers' soup, this recipe turns basically whatever vegetables you have on hand into a hearty meal.
