A month back I purchased 20 pounds of Fonio wholesale from Atacora. It’s been a grain many in the health community have been interested in. The problem is despite the undisputed attention it has been getting this year, it is still a scarce food in most health food stores here in the States. I’m talking the GOOD raw quality Fonio..not the precooked BS Fonio they attempt to sell in most Asian market grocery stores! Anyways, the idea behind the purchase was to offer it for sale to many within the community. With it being a product I sell, I wanted to have a few recipes cooked using Fonio to inspire those who intend on cooking with it.
Fonio is BY FAR the most diverse grain I’ve ever dealt with. The possibilities are endless and it can be easily manipulated to create various types of dishes. Within this post, I would like to present the few dishes I was able to create dealing with Fonio. I attached my rating of 1-10 (10 being the best) in terms of taste and satisfaction for each meal I prepared with fonio.
