Naturally gluten-free with a mild nutty flavour, teff is the staple grain of traditional Ethiopian cooking often used to make a delicious sourdough pancake called injera. Grind into a fine flour for a gluten free flour replacement, or use the grains whole, simmered or cooked in other recipes. Ivory teff is milder and lighter tasting than brown. The word’s smallest grain, its name in Greek means ‘the grass of love’.
Use whole, or grind into a fine flour. Prepare 1 cup teff to 3 cups water. Bring to boil and simmer for 20 min. Use as porridge, in place of rice or add to stews, soups, salads or baking. Grind the grain to ferment into flat breads - see our video on how on our blog.
