Add a little adventure to everyday meals with teff, a tiny whole grain
that has been a staple of traditional Ethiopian cooking for thousands
of years. Whole Grain Teff (Tef, T'ef) an ancient East African cereal
grass, is a nutritional powerhouse. It is the smallest grain in the
world (about 100 grains are the size of a kernel of wheat!). The germ
and bran, where the nutrients are concentrated, account for a larger
volume of the seed compared to more familiar grains.
With a mild, nutty flavor and lots of calcium, protein and fiber, whole
grain teff is a great addition to porridge, stews, pilaf or baked
goods. Cooked whole grain teff makes a unique hot breakfast cereal
similar in consistency and texture to wheat farina. Teff can be made
into polenta, added to veggie burgers, cakes, cookies and breads.
Naturally gluten free, teff is a wonderful way to mix up your menu with
something a bit exotic.
