Teff Whole Grains

Adding to your collection of gluten-free whole grain alternatives, teff is the seed of an annual grass that is a traditional staple in the cuisines of Eritrea and Ethiopia. It is the main ingredient in the sour-tasting flatbread called injera. For such a nutritious grain, teff seeds are tiny: about 100 to 150 teff seeds equal the size of one wheat kernel!
