Have you tried this local dish ??

Waakye is a Ghanaian dish of cooked rice and beans, normally had for breakfast or lunch.[3] However, others eat it for dinner. The rice and beans, typically dark looked at peas or cow beans, are cooked together, alongside red dried sorghum leaf sheaths or stalks and limestone.[4] The sorghum leaves and limestone give the dish its trademark flavor and a red appearance and the sorghum is taken out before utilization. The word waakye is from the Hausa language and means beans. It is the contracted type of the complete name shinkafa da wake which means rice and beans.[5]
