I hope the week has been great for you so far 🙂 Last week, I enjoyed an absolutely delicious new-to-me breakfast that I was introduced to by my grandma while I was home for Christmas…TEFF!
My grandma LOVES trying new foods just as much (if not more) than I do, and she was very excited to bring along some teff in her carry on while visiting my parents over the holiday. We enjoyed this tiny Ethiopian grain as a hot cereal for breakfast, and after posting a pic on instagram several of you asked for the recipe. My grandma was MORE than happy to share it with all of you.
What is Teff?
Teff is a very teeny tiny grain that is naturally gluten free with a slightly earthy, chocolatey flavor and a texture similar to cream of wheat or malt-o-meal when eaten as a hot breakfast cereal. It is widely used in traditional Ethiopian cuisine and is chock full of calcium, protein (7g per serving!), and fiber. It’s tasty and adds a fun twist to hot morning breakfast cereal.
Yields: approximately 4 servings
Let me know if you give this wonderful little grain a try!! Enjoy 🙂
Before I head out for the day I wanted to give a shout to KIND! (The snack company!) Last week, they sent me a little reminder that today is Random Acts of Kindness Day, and to celebrate the day of love and caring they are performing 24 acts of kindness all throughout Denver! How sweet is that?
I’ll be performing my own acts of kindness (hopefully I can make it to 24 today!!) to spread the love, but I wanted to mention it so that you could help spread the kindness around too!
Here are some helpful Random Acts of Kindness resources:
Happy Random Acts of Kindness Day!!
