How To Cook Teff
February 05, 2017
To cook teff to achieve a fluffy rice/quinoa like consistency (think salads, accompaniment to curries):
1. Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a large, wide-based saucepan
2. Add 1 cup teff grain and coat for 1 minute
3. Add 1.5 cups water (& a pinch of salt) and bring to the boil
4. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer with the lid on, until all water has absorbed (estimated 8 minutes)
5. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, place lid back on leave to sit for 10 minutes
6. Serve and enjoy
For a thicker consistency (think porridge, risotto, polenta substitute) try this:

1. Add 3 cups water (& a pinch of salt) to 1 cup teff grain
2. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to a gentle simmer with lid on for 10-12 minutes or until desired consistency achieved
3. Remove from heat, serve and enjoy.
