Teff porridge in the morning for breakfast.
It has to be clean, no processed sugar, with lots of great toppings!
Teff is one of those products I have a subscription from my online grocery shopping app. I save money on it that way, as I consume a lot of it. I am working on a list of the top food items I purchase on a regular basis. It should be up by tomorrow.
Anyway, I include teff in my diet because it is so rich in nutrients! It’s loaded with fiber, ( insoluble fiber, the one that’s necessary digestive health) calcium, potassium, and it’s gluten-free.
It’s quite an interesting grass. Yes, it’s another grass mistaken for a grain! Teff means “lost”. The seed is so small that you will lose it forever if you let it fall on the floor.
Delicious Teff porridge
The reddish-brown kind is more popular and easy to find than you think. It’s affordable and easy to make. Teff is a very prized staple in Ethiopia Somalia. It’s one ingredients of the delicious Injera bread. Injera bread is what tortilla is for Mexicans to Ethiopians, and cassava if you are from the carribeans. It kind of looks like fluffy crepes to me but equally delicious!
