Fonio Breakfast Porridge

Description

Fonio grains are cooked with dried fruits then topped with coconut, cinnamon, and nuts to make this nutritious breakfast porridge.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup fonio grains
  • 4 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 6 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 6 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions


  1. Toast walnuts and almonds in a skillet over medium-low heat, 4 to 5 minutes. Chop into big pieces and set aside.
  2. Pour water and fonio into a medium saucepan. Stir to eliminate any lumps. Add dates. Bring to a low boil, stirring often while crushing the date pieces. Reduce heat to a simmer when dates begin to dissolve. Add 1 cup milk, raisins, and cranberries. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until fonio absorbs all the liquid, about 8 minutes.
  3. Divide the porridge into 6 bowls. Serve topped with equal amounts of toasted nuts, blueberries, 6 tablespoons milk, coconut, and cinnamon.
