Details: Meet Fonio (pronounced phone-yo): West Africa’s oldest grain. This tiny ancient grain holds a place of honor in cultures and cuisines across West Africa and has been grown by smallholder farmers for thousands of years. To the Dogon people of Mali, it is “The Seed of the Universe,” the grain at the root of all existence. Fonio grows across the Sahel region: the semi-arid band between the Sahara desert and lush forests to the south. The Sahel region’s hot, dry climate and poor sandy soil do not support most crops. But fonio flourishes. Its extensive roots help it draw water from deep underground and secure the topsoil from erosion, making it a climate smart grain. More than half of the world’s food energy comes from three “mega-crops”: rice, wheat, and corn. Including different grains like fonio into your diet helps to increase our planet’s biodiversity and resilience. Yassa! Fonio Pilaf, aka The Spice: “Yassa chicken, a delicious dish of caramelized onion, lime, and chicken, is one of Sengal’s most famous dishes,” Yolélé co-founder Chef Pierre Thiam explains in his seminal cookbook “Senegal: Modern Senegalese Recipes from the Source to the Bowl.” Inspired by that dish, this pilaf is a perfect introduction to Senegalese cuisine. The flavors are complex and deep. Yassa Fonio Pilaf offers sweetness from caramelized onion, combined with the smokiness of roasted peppers, and acidity of lime to create all the comforting traditional yassa flavors in one easy to make side dish.
