Fonio Porridge

Since pantry surfing and discovering the pack of Fonio I had previously forgotten, I have been having fun with it.

Fonio is so easy to cook, I found online a Bambara saying “Fonio never embarrasses the cook”. And I intend to cook it in so many ways and hope the saying works for me too.

To make Fonio/Acha porridge you need

  • ½ cup Fonio/Acha
  • 1½ cup water
  • Sugar (optional)
  • a pinch of salt
  • Bring water to boil
  • Add Fonio
  • Turn heat down
  • Stir till translucent, add sugar

Serve warm.

There are so many ways you can serve your Fonio/Acha porridge.

It makes for a great power up breakfast.
