This is a great substitute for hot breakfast cereal. It’s soo light you could eat it as a pre workout.

This grain is the bomb!

Excellent grain. I made "Ethiopian Sweet Potato Fonio tacos" (google the recipe) and they were a hit! I also made "Fonio Balls in African Peanut Sauce" which were excellent too. My gut is happy with biodiversity of whole grains!

Not exactly “like couscous”

Posted   by melanie from Hickory Hills, Illinois

Wanted to like this, due to the region it comes from & nutrition, but fonio has almost a sandy texture that I personally found odd. Could def work in certain instances/recipes but if you’re looking for a couscous swap as the packing suggests... this ain’t it.

I love this stuff. I originally purchased just one to try it out. I just purchased two more and love it. Easy to make, taste good and very fulfilling.

I am absolutely obsessed with this!!

Honestly, yes the product is bland but I look at it as a blank slate. I used Fonio as the package suggests concerning cooking but I also used plenty of salt, pepper, garlic powder, za’atar as well as fresh green onion and herbs from my garden. As I tasted it I knew that it needed other items in order to make a more complete meal. Therefore, I added chickpeas and tomatoes. At this point it would act as a great side dish or even a main dish. I bought so much of it because my whole family loves it- even my two young children.
