Soy beans are a good source of protein. They also are easy to turn into tofu, soymilk and soy bouille. Bouille is a common drink here and is best described as flour-thickened sugar water with rice. The recipe can easily be modified, which is good for volunteers trying to introduce more nutrients into a local diet.
Last week, I made soy bouille with the women’s gic in my village (a gic is a small, usually financially-based group).
