Teff – is the newest of the new/ancient grains. Originally a staple food of Ethiopia, teff is now grown in Idaho. Only 1/150th the size of wheat. It is a concentrated powerhouse of nutrients.
Teff is relatively inexpensive and snap to make.
Bring 3 cups of water and a pinch of sea salt to a boil. Add 1 cup of teff, cover, and simmer 15-20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Stir occasionally toward the end of cooking time.Serve with sprinkled with chopped walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.
I love it for breakfast! The first time I ate it was in the morning on an empty stomach. I felt an inner calm, strength and endurance that I related the feeling to the teff breakfast.
Available NOW in Ivory Teff with a milder taste or Brown Teff with a more robust flavor. It is high in calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and all the B-vitamins (except B12). Teff is also high in protein, containing all 8 amino acids essential for human growth and development.
