Bouillon (/ˈbjɒn/) is a Haitian soup traditionally cooked on January 1st to celebrate Haitian independence day.[1] This name comes from the French verb bouillir, meaning to boil. It is made with sliced meat, potatoes, sliced plantains, yam, kelp, cabbage, and celery (other ingredient variations exist), and cooked as a mildly thick soup.
