Why You’ll Love It

Serve just like rice or couscous. It's great when tossed with chopped fruit, grape tomatoes, herbs, citrus, olive oil, and a little minced onion. When you buy fonio, you're helping some of the world's most vulnerable people make a living from their scarce resources.

Super fun new product to try! We love to incorporate it into our meals to switch our grains up! It adds some interest and has a great, subtle flavor. The texture is similar to quinoa, but smaller.

Interesting Grain

Posted   by Celeste from OGDEN, Utah

I bought this out of curiosity because It has an impressive nutritional profile and is gluten free. It is interesting, almost couscous-like but smaller. It has a dry mouth-feel which can be a turn-off if served by itself. We have added it to stir fry and it's pretty good like that. I also make my own gluten free flour and I have added a handful of fonio along with buckwheat, millet, and rice. I've used this blend in waffles, pancakes, and even cookies and it is pretty good!

Never had it before. I work for an international organization so when I went to work all my African colleagues came to see me. We had a long chat about fonio and it is super delicious!!! nutritious, it feels you for the rest of the day and you can add to your vegetables soups or stews.

Super!

I love this grain. I add it to soups to thicken them up a little. I read about the health benefits of this super grain in a research study and had to try it. It cooks in a very short time also. Home staple for sure.

This grain is great! it's fluffy and absorbent like couscous, but has a much fuller and earthier flavor!
