What is it and why should I be interested in it..you might be thinking about now? Protein, gluten free, balances hormone levels, boosts immunity, aids in weight loss..wow the list goes on!
Sign me up! Does it taste good? Yes! It has a very mild flavor, slightly nutty and sweet. The grain is teeny tiny, much smaller than quinoa. Consistency of polenta when cooked. How do you use it? Cook it as you would quinoa or oatmeal and use it like you would any hot porridge.
Or you can say it is pudding and add a little maple syrup as I did and eat it for dessert or still eat it for breakfast! If you use the teff flour you can make it into a type of crepe that in Ethiopia is called injera or use it as a great gluten-free flour.
Perhaps you have had it?
