Burkinabé cuisine, the cuisine of Burkina Faso, is similar to the cuisines in many parts of West Africa, and is based around staple foods of sorghum, millet, rice, maize, peanuts, potatoes, beans, yams and okra. Grilled meat is common, particularly mutton, goat, beef and fish.
- Tô (Saghbo in Mooré), a bitter pulp made from crushed, cooked millet, sorghum or corn. The dough is mixed with a sauce made from vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, sumbala and carrots. The resulting stew is sometimes supplemented by a piece of meat like mutton or goat.
- French green beans
- Poulet Bicyclette, a grilled chicken dish common across West Africa.
- Ragout d'Igname
- Riz gras, rice cooked with onions and tomatoes.
