Stone soup recipes?

The gist is that a village is not willing to share its food. Someone started a soup using only a stone in the water. As the villagers gathered in curiousity, the cook would taste the soup and pronounce it delicious, although it would be slightly better if it contained ...an onion. One of the villagers gets caught up in the hype, and unearths an onion previously kept stashed. the next time, some carrots, and so on, til a piece of meat or a chicken is finally contributed, and the entire village shares the delicious soup, and think! It all came from a stone!
There's a telling of the story linked in this thread: Stone Curry.
The "recipe" I've made most often is onion, carrot, celery, tomato, chicken, salt, herbs, served with bread or over rice. The most fun part for kids is finding the "perfect" stone and scrubbing it clean. (I boil it in other water too, first. Bless the microwave).
What are your preferred stone soup ingredients? And do you prefer a metamorphic or igneous starter? ;)

In a serious vein, I don't really have a preferred recipe for stone soup, since to my mind, it's a soup made from left over bit of stuff that you've managed to scrounge up. That said, most of em lately feature a white chicken stock (sometimes fortified with pork bones) and sometimes a sofrito.
At the soup kitchen I volunteer at, I whipped up a stone soup from canned diced tomatoes, some left over roast pork from the day before (and the jus it leaked), and a bunch of shelled edamame donated from the local school district. The first time we ever ran out of soup, lol. Sadly, it was lightning in a bottle.

We have a fantastic local beach with perfect oval smooth stones. Maybe a seafood chowder?
That is the answer.... Beach stones - Seafood soup, Field stones - Vegetable soup, what else we got ?
Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
