How to Prepare Waakye

Ingredients

You can use kidney beans, red beans, or black eye peas (beans) to prepare waakye.

Get about 200grams of any of these beans

You will also need about the same quantity of long grain rice, or slightly less amount as that of the beans.

Salt

Four to five cups of water

COOKING TIME: About 1 hour

METHOD

Soak your preferred beans in water over night in water to become soft and easy to cook. Alternatively, you can soak it for 3 – 5 hours in the morning, should you want to prepare this meal for lunch or dinner.

Now bring the soaked beans to boil in a pot after washing and cleaning the beans. Allow to boil for about 15 minutes.

Then wash your rice and add to the boiling beans and add more water. Allow the mixture to boil for about 30 minutes, adding water to achieve the desired level of tenderness.

Add salt to taste.

I Love Ghana Tips:

Your waakye is ready to eat. Serve with a sauce of vegetable and fish or meat.

Some would add blended tomatoes straight into the boiled mixture, curry, magi cube, chilli pepper, and a little vegetable or palm oil and allow to boil for another 10 minutes, and ready to serve as complete.

2) Every day waakye

Rinse

and pick over a cup of black-eyed peas, then soak them for about 4 hours covered

with water (or, if you're in a rush like I always seem to be, just bring them to

a boil in a saucepan, let them boil for a couple of minutes, sit for an hour,

drain off the water and add 2 1/2 fresh cups of water to the sauce pan, along

with a teaspoon of baking soda, a cup of rice, the 1/2 cup chopped onion, a

tablespoon of vegetable oil, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring it to a boil, lower

the heat to simmer and let it cook, covered, until the rice and beans are

cooked. Watch out that it doesn't burn. It may need a little more water and

stirring while it cooks
