Perfect Soup

The sprouted beans and rice elevate this soup to a level previously not attained by other soups. Besides the nutritional value, the sprouting adds a delicate sweetness as well as alleviating the usual gastronomic discomfort associated with beans. It may be too good. This is a long standing staple of our winter diet.
