Turkey Soup with Brown Rice
One of my favorite stories from my childhood is “Stone Soup.”
I don’t recall the author of the version I heard as a child, but research tells me the original author was Robert Moser. The book was first published in 1808.
As a child, I thought it was just magical the way everyone’s small contribution to the pot combined to make a delicious soup that fed so many people.
When our daughters were young, we had a “Stone Soup” activity on a chilly, rainy weekend.
I read the story to them and then we set out to make soup.
We even found a stone to add to the pot of water as the first ingredient.
I don’t know if they had the same reaction to the story as I did when I was young, but I loved sharing the experience with them.
Here is a recipe for a very simple soup using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
Just start with some broth and meat and toss in whatever makes you happy.
