Ground provisions is the term used in West Indian nations to describe a number of traditional vegetables staples that are planted in the ground, such as yams , sweet potatoes, dasheen root, eddos and cassava. 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. It is usually accompanied by stewed meat, fish or chicken or with "buljol", a dish made from salted cod, sautéed with onions and tomatoes.

Ground provision is considered as a healthier option to rice.
