Crispy on the outside and cheesy on the inside, this sizzling skillet fonio galette is so satisfying for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The variations are endless: add sautéed veggies like onions + zucchini, top with a fried egg, or sub in vegan butter and cheese to make dairy-free!


Makes one 8-inch galette
    • tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/2  cup thinly sliced shallots
    • 1 1/2  cups dry Yolélé fonio
    • cups vegetable broth
    • salt and pepper

        Add the fonio and continuously stir for 2 minutes.
