Teff originates from Ethiopia and is one of the earliest crops cultivated for food. These tiny grains have a mild, nutty flavour and slightly crunchy texture once cooked. It is delicious cooked as porridge or as a starch alternative.
Long known by the nomadic tribes of Ethiopia and Eritrea, a cup of teff packs in 123 mg of calcium, a high dose of vitamin C, iron, protein, fibre, and resistant starch
For porridge: Add 1 1/2 cups water and a pinch of salt to 1/2 cup teff. Stir and cover. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes. Suggestion: Add milk, syrup, cinnamon and chopped nuts. For a starch alternative: Add 1 tbsp oil to above recipe before cooking.
This product is packed in a warehouse where peanuts and tree nuts are present.

I'd buy it again though.18/02/2018, By KatlegoI use it as a porridge. I don't think it tastes amazing but it gets better with each serving.

The porridge I'm getting from text is far more satisfying than maize.24/08/2017, By YvetteI am so glad I discovered this grain. The nutty flavour and texture is wonderful for breakfast, I just added a bit of water to make it less stiff. I also tried a recipe with cream and parmesan. Going to try the teff bread recipe next. Hmmm, its recommended. Try it!20/07/2017, By DaniAwesome! makes a great tasting breakfast porridge. Very easy on the tummy.
