Sandy thin

Thinner than I expected. It takes way longer than the package instructions to cook.

Not for us

I was really excited to try Fonio after reading all the wonderful reviews, I even stocked up a little when it was available because it seems to fly off the shelves when it’s in stock. Unfortunately it isn’t something my husband and I enjoyed as the texture was like what I imagine sand would be like. We’ll be donating our unopened bags to our local food bank and hope another family can enjoy it.

Pantry staple!

When I became GF I was really sad to lose cous cous in my pantry rotation. This is a great substitute. It’s incredibly versatile and I’ve use it for both salads and warm dishes. Highly recommend.

It's a nice little side dish. A little goes a long way. Follow the cooking instructions precisely of it will be too watery.

Not what I was expecting

I thought it would be more like a cous cous but it is more like cream of wheat.
