Happy discovery

I had not heard of Fonio, but was curious and decided to try it. I am glad I did. It has a nice nutty flavor and goes well with everything I have tried it with. I will be buying this again.

Nice alternative

A little bit gritty but a fast-cooking alterative grain for multiple uses. Takes on the flavors you add so can be savory or sweet--in soup or as a porride. Haven't tried it cold in a salad but my sense is that the grains are so tiny they'd get lost. Quinoa is probably a better choice for that.

Looking for a gf alternative to cous cous? Try Fonio. You prepare it the same way-- add to boiling water, let sit for about 5 mins. It was a bit "gloppier" than cous cous, but we enjoyed the flavor. The packaging is cool, too! It's worth a try.

I use this as a substitute for grits. It’s easy to cook and friendly to my digestive system too. No bloating after I eat Fonio.
