Also known as the Desert Grain

Fonio is a notable crop in West Africa.
It is nutritious, fast-growing, and it matures before other grains, allowing for harvest during the "hungry season".
It grows in dry climates without irrigation; a true Desert Grain!

How to cook our Fonio?

Rinse 50g of Fonio in water, then bring 500 ml of water to boil.

Pour Fonio into boiling water while stirring continuously to avoid clumping.
Turn heat down and add some salt to it.

Additional water can be added to preferred consistency. Cook under medium heat for 10 minutes or until the Fonio is tender. Enjoy with any topping of your choice!

Place 50g Fonio and 120 ml water into a bowl. Cover and cook for 3 mins in microwave. Stir and leave for 3 mins. Fluff with a fork and serve.
