Teff has a slightly sweet and potent nutty flavor reminiscent of hazelnuts. Since Teff is fine in texture, dry-roasting, soaking, and sauteing are recommended prior to use.
Suggested Use: Teff makes a good morning cereal. Due to its small size, it works well combined with other larger grains in a stuffing or pilaf.
Basic Prep: For best results, toast Teff prior to cooking. Bring 4 cups of liquid and 1 cup of Teff to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 15-20 minutes until tender, stirring occasionally to prevent lumps. One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
