West African cuisine boasts a diverse tapestry of flavours, textures, and health-conscious ingredients. Comprising 16 countries, this culinary tradition features a variety of foods, incorporating ancient grains such as fonio, teff, millet, cassava, and sorghum. Additionally, it incorporates kola nuts, ginger, yam, plantain, moringa, black-eyed beans, okra, peanuts, and scotch bonnet chilies among others.

Many dishes are rooted in a base of tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers. Palm nut oil, a predominant cooking oil associated with coastal regions, imparts a unique color, flavour, and texture to the cuisine.
