Hi.

Well I saw the below recipe and thought that looks really good.
I have never used/heard of teff flour before so when I went to our local health food store and saw Teff I automatically bought it not thinking....

http://www.nourishin...free-yeast.html


I bought Whole Grain Teff rather then Teff Flour... ahh who would have thought <_<

Now I need to use the Whole Grain Teff for something...
Has anyone used this ingredient before?
What do you do with it??


I went to Bob's Red Mill and took off the recipe to make a hot cereal and looked at the couple other recipes they have but I still don't know what to do with it.

Please Help (ahh I paid $7 something for this and don't want to toss it because it expired before I figure something out).

Thank you!!!!

I've used teff flour before to make injera bread for Ethiopian dishes, but never whole grain teff. I was at my health food store looking for teff flour one time and they only had the whole grain, and she suggested grinding it myself. Sounds like a lot of work, but it's worth a try!

Thank you!
I have never done that before... Do you use a food processor or ___?
Thanks again

Hi, it is very easy to grind teff, it is such a small grain. I use a little coffee grinder I bought at walmart for less than 15.00 to grind
flax, teff basically any of the small grains.
It works really well.

I cooked it, and then used it to make a tabbouleh type salad. It's kind of gelatinous when you cook it, so I let it cool and then mixed it with the other ingredients.

Thank you for the replies. Sorry haven't really been on the computer much lately.

Thanks for the pointer about the small coffee grinder. I found a decent priced one at WalMart and am looking forward to trying it out.

Thanks again
