Jollof Fonio Pilaf Tomato + Feta Grain Bowl
July 31, 2020 by Max Baroni
This quick and easy bowl makes for a nourishing vegetarian dinner or side dish. Jollof Fonio Pilaf is seasoned with tomato, bell pepper, onion, and a little smoky heat. Its savory, umami flavors pair perfectly with fresh arugula and a nice briny feta cheese. Add some tinned sardines or tuna packed in olive oil for a little extra protein.
