I had never heard of it so I googled it, not really sure, but it looks like you have some protein, some starch and some veggies. you would really need to sit down and look at your recipe to know how much. add up how many servings of each are in the whole thing and then divide by the amount of servings. sorry I guess I am not a whole lot of help.

Yeah I'd like to be able to divide it up... but it's not a recipe I'm making. The church makes it and we're going to my parents' for dinner tonight and that's what's on the menu. Can't you just see me dividing up all of my mom's soup before we eat it?? :-( I looked up things like veggie soup and beef stew.. and bouja is sort of between soup and stew.. lots of meat, lots of veggies and a little barley.. so I'm thinking that a 1 1/2c probably has 1p, 2v and 1s. I'm wondering if I should count a fat in there since I know the meat isn't going to be as lean as I would make it at home? It's probably got a bunch of sodium in it as well..
