Stovetop Teff

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • For more flavor, cook with broth instead of water.
  • Enjoy teff added to soups or stews.
  • For a nuttier flavor, you can first toast the teff in the saucepan for a few minutes over medium heat. Then add the water and continue with cooking directions.
  • For cooked cereal, use 3 cups water. Stir now and again while cooking on low, until the water is absorbed and mixture has thickened, about 20 to 30 minutes. Add more water if needed for the texture you want. Top with any type of fruit, milk and nuts or seeds.
  • Slice leftovers, then reheat and top with a stew or stir-fry.
