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.
