If you’ve been to a Ghanaian kitchen, you will realise that these three ingredients are always used in our foods. It is almost as if, we (Ghanaians) can’t cook without them. Almost everyone loves using them depending on what food is being prepared. Some love to add more one than the other but nevertheless, you are bound to always have them in a typical Ghanaian kitchen.
Outside Ghana, especially in the Western food cultures, some people may be allergic to one or two or even all of the three. It is important to omit them if allergic. The dish might taste slightly different but don’t worry, your health is more important.
Personally, I always have this blend ready in the fridge to save time and also aid in getting the flavours right on time. It comes in handy on busy days and I don’t have to always cry’ my way into cooking. 😉 😉 We will be using it a lot in most recipes here as well. Save some time and this magic trio ready if you’re ready for a taste of our Ghanaian foods in the comfort of your homes.
So, here’s my super trio blend of roots, that we use commonly in Ghanaian cuisine.
