Fonio grains are mixed with aromatic vegetables, sesame seeds, nuts, and raisins for a nutritious alternative to rice pilaf. Serve this with your favorite savory meat or fish dish. Fonio is one of the most forgiving grains out there. It reheats splendidly, too. This dish can be made ahead of time and simply reheated by adding a bit of stock and a turn or two in the microwave.
