Another dish with its roots from the Hausa people, waakye is a mixture of cooked rice and beans with sorghum leaves. The leaves give it the conspicuous reddish color and also some flavor.

Also a delicacy with a section of Ghanaians claiming it’s tastier than jollof, waakye is eaten with meat/chicken, boiled eggs, spaghetti, gari (cassava flakes) and salad. The sides to the dish are, however, preferential.
