Bean*sprouts+tomatoes =

I thought I could use a mathematical equation to represent this because it's as straight-forward and simple to make, and prepared by a logical mind, as Bean Sprouts Tomatoes Soup!

Is this a soup, I don't know, but I've had it before. It's a wonderful soup to cook, drink and eat, for a change. Don't be deceived by the simplicity of the ingredients. Bean sprouts and tomatoes can make wholesome flavorful soup!!

Bean sprouts tomato soup (serves ~2-3)
-3/4lb bean sprouts, washed with roots removed
-2 tomatoes, washed and cut into bite-size pieces
-1/2lb lean pork(optional; can be omitted if going vegetarian)
-salt to taste

1.Blanch the pork in boiling water to remove scum
2.Place blanched pork in slow-cooker and cook for 1hr
3.Turn to low heat, add bean sprouts and tomatoes, simmer in slow-cooker for 15-20mins
4.If you prefer more crunch to the bean sprouts and tomatoes, simmering for just 10 mins will do
