Creamy Fonio Breakfast Bowl

Serves 6

  • 1 cup fonio
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups almond milk or soy milk
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 fresh mango, chopped or 1/2 cup fresh blueberries or 1 sliced banana
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews, toasted (optional)

To prepare the fonio, place in a large heavy saucepan. Add water and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add dried cranberries, raisins, milk, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Let stand for 1 minute. Stir in brown sugar, fresh fruit, and cinnamon.

Toast chopped cashews (if using) in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

Sprinkle with toasted cashews and serve.
