2 Minute Teff Bread

Two-minute Teff Bread

I started working with teff regularly after I discovered just how incredibly resilient it was, how little water it needed and how key it was to our food future. Grown abundantly in Ethiopia, I wondered whether it would work on some family favourites. So, I had a play with pancakes which turned out to be delicious and then this little random number — a “cheat” bread. Basically, a bready pancake you could cook in a skillet in minutes and have with lunch. I hope you enjoy it. It’s become one of my most popular recipes with the low-tox community.

Serves: 1–2

Note: For a sweet variation, add 2 tbsp coconut milk to the mixture and replace the dried herbs with 1 tbsp rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup to create delicious, thick hot cakes.
