There’s a whiff of culinary greatness about rice and beans combos in general. I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with the fact that the combination provides both protein (beans) and carbohydrates (rice). Waakye is the local Ghanaian name given to this rice and beans combination. I recall having this in plantain leaves with assorted meat and fish, shito, waakye stew, gari, boiled eggs and macaroni as sides as a kid
