I wish I could remember the name of the doc, it was very informative and on PBS. It did state other influences but that Africans introduced yam, rice, okra and peanuts.. I believe.

Actually, slave owners looked for Africans from a specific country (i can't remember which one) to irrigate rice in the Carolinas because of how efficient they were at it in African. Rice then became a valuable crop in the Carolinas.
 
ETA: It going to air again on te 22nd of Dec.

Many crops were already native to the Americas before they bought the slaves over

Corn, beans, squash, pumpkin, game, etc,...
The French brought over white wheat. Turned bouillabaisse into gumbo..
The Spanish brought over the pigs, cows, potatoes, lima beans, peppers... 
The Africans brought over the rice, yams, okra, watermelon, the frying etc,...
The English made the puddings and roasted everythang

There's a large blend in Southern cooking ("Southern" being a very broad term btw)
