Try Some Teff

Leave a comment

Teff is my new favorite whole grain.  It is the smallest grain in the world!  It’s highly nutritious since the germ and bran account for a larger volume of the seed compared with other grains.  It looks like brown, coarse sand.  I have enjoyed having it for breakfast, but you can really eat it anytime.  I usually toast the seeds with some butter until they pop.  Then I simmer it with some cloves or cinnamon and a touch of salt.  After it’s cooked, I add some honey to taste.  You can also add fruit or other spices.  Husband tested and approved!  A 1/4 cup has 180 calories and 7 grams of protein.  And it’s yummy!
