After reading the “Stone Soup” story, our Test Kitchen enjoyed concocting this version of the folktale classic. It’s chock-full of veggies and lots more ingredients…enough for everyone to bring something to add to the fun and flavor!
Tomatoes and roasted sweet red pepper pair up to create a fabulous base for this herb cream soup. Serve it as a first course at holiday dinners and you'll be amazed at the compliments you receive.—Doty Emory, Jasper, Georgia
