Description

Fonio is a gluten-free, quick cooking (in just FIVE minutes), versatile grain that has been grown and revered in Africa for over 5,000 years. It has a light, mild, slighty nutty taste and fluffy texture that absorbs seasonings and sauces beautifully.

Fonio is nutritionally dense, rich in important minerals and amino acids, and has a low glycemic index.
The grain is tiny when raw but expands over 4x its size when cooked and is similar in look and texture to couscous-- except it's an ancient, climate-smart grain.
Level up your cooking and use fonio to replace any other grain-- in salads, grain bowls, hot sides, and more. Fonio also makes a great hot cereal, soup addition, and gluten-free baking ingredient.
Yolélé is a social enterprise founded by Senegalese chef Pierre Thiam and words directly with smallholder fonio farmers to increase incomes, combat the effects of climate change, and promote biodiversity.

To the Dogon people of Mali, fonio is known as “the seed of the universe” ...the grain at the root of all existence."

Easy to make, healthy and has a flavorful nutty taste! Definitely an alternative to rice! If you like couscous or quinoa, you will probably like this too!

This cooks so fast, it’s amazing. You boil water and put this in then turn the heat off and let it sit a few minutes. It’s wonderful. And I love the texture, it’s like couscous, just more nutritious. I’ve mainly just mixed it with sautéed veggies, but I could see using it instead of breadcrumbs, like in stuffed peppers.
