Whole Grain Teff (uses?)
0

7 posts in this topic

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....

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!

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

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
