Ghana: Eating Waakye

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ghana, Food

Fran blogs about eating a local dish, waakye, in Ghana [1]: “Last night I cooked up some waakye (pronounced “WAAchi where the “i” sounds like the “i” in “in” and made from rice and beans or black-eyed peas), fried some ripe plantain slices, made a little gravy (oil, onion, tomatoes, hot peppers, salt and tomato paste), and stir-fried some cabbage and carrots for dinner.”
