In Ghana Waakye, is cooked with Black eyed Beans and Rice infused with Millet leaves, whereby in the Caribbean its Kidney Beans and Rice referred to as Rice and Peas.
This recipe is a fusion of the two cultures with my own twist.
I've used Red Beans for this recipe, which lends its deep colour to the dish.
Ideally one can include bicarbonate of Soda to soften both the Rice and Beans which gives the dish a pliable texture.
I've omitted the Bicarbonate of Soda in this recipe, as I find it alters the flavour of the Beans and kills some of the nutrients of the Beans.
Anyway, this is a must try recipe which pairs perfectly with the Shito recipe.
