    I think rice, beans, EBA (made from cassava) are some of the staple foods found in Nigeria. They are available in most Nigerian home and they are affordable for both the poor, the average and the rich. Also they are easy to get and can be prepared in diverse ways depending on the way you want it or the way u think you can afford…So i think most Nigerian prefer these staple foods.

    There are different staple foods that exist in Nigeria but the main staple food in Nigeria is rice. Rice is eaten by all tribes, zones, religion and ethnic group in the country. It is very easy to prepare, affordable and very delicious. It can  be made in various forms such as fried rice, jollof rice, coconut rice and MTN rice. It is found in every part of the country all year round. Also, several states in Nigeria now cultivate and process their own rice.
