Teff is a great quick-cooking grain. As a porridge or “polenta,” it cooks up creamy with a light delicate crunch which makes it highly adaptable for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, even for dessert. It cooks in about 15 minutes, perfect for busy weekdays.
In today’s October Unprocessed FAQ, I’m going to try to clear up some confusion surrounding one of our most common ingredients: Flours and grains.
If you’ve been intimidated by homemade bread then this is the recipe for you. It’s very simple to put together and you can have fresh, whole wheat bread on the table in just two hours.
This wheat berry salad has an earthy warmness to it, a tad nutty but only slightly, and depending on what other ingredients are mixed in, the wonderful ability to suit any season.
Why not switch up the grains in your diet and add an ancient grain like kamut? It’s not just healthy, it’s delicious! We used this grain to make a side dish at one of our cooking classes.
