the AncientWest AfricanGrainCooks in5 minGluten-Free
Grown and revered across West Africa for over 5,000 years, fonio is gluten-free, nutritionally dense, rich in important minerals and amino acids, and has a low glycemic index.
It’s light + fluffy and has a nutty, earthy taste. Fonio goes with just about anything and soaks up spices + sauces beautifully. Cook it just like couscous and it’s perfect in salads, grain bowls, tabouleh, hot sides, and more. Fonio also makes a delicious hot cereal, veggie burger, stuffing, and gluten-free baking ingredient.
To the Dogon people of Mali, fonio is known as “the Seed of the Universe,” …the grain at the root of all existence.
