Waakye is a very popular Ghanaian food. It is often eaten as breakfast or lunch, and sold by vendors on the streets of big and small cities alike in Ghana. It is made boiling rice and beans together. Some may include tomatoes, chilli pepper, other spicy ingredients and fish, prawn or meat. I got this recipe from the African Foods website. There are a couple of suggestions at the end of the recipe.I did NOT include the soaking time for the beans. Enjoy!
