What is the most co-op food you can think of? (Well, I am sure there are a lot). For me, I thought about the story I was told when I was a kid called “Stone Soup.” It’s the story of hungry strangers who come to a village and convince all the people in the town to share a little bit of their food for a soup and then everyone in the town enjoys the soup together. So, it’s literally a co-op soup!
So this is a recipe and isn’t exactly “stone soup,” because everyone you know isn’t bringing an ingredient from home…but it has a lot of yummy things in it. But, you could have each of your friends bring something for the soup and you could eat it all together on game night!
