Plain rice and beans (white rice and beans) is a staple meal in many regions around the world and Nigeria is not an exception. In Ghana it is called Waakye/Waache or Awaakye.

It’s slightly different from the way the Nigerian Rice and Beans is prepared because potash and millet leaves are usually added to the Ghanaian version.

Though the classic Nigerian Rice and Beans is not eaten plain, it’s usually served with different sauces and stews.

It also pairs well with salmon patties or vegetable salad. Here's how to make Nigerian Rice and Beans.
