What is Ground Provision?

Ground Provision is the term used in West Indian nations to describe a number of vegetable staples, such as yams, cassava, breadfruit and plantains. They are often cooked and served as a side dish in local cuisine. Caribbean recipes will often simply call for ground provisions rather than specify specific vegetables.

The following is a list of some ground provisions that are cooked in the Caribbean. I have provided a little info about each provision and how to cook Ground Provision.
