Teff

Teff is from Ethiopia where it is used to make a bread called Injera. Usually, only teff flour is used, but be cautious if ordering Injera in a restaurant. In North America, teff flour is usually combined with wheat flour to make Injera. Always ask. It is available as whole grain or flour. The whole grain can be used as a hot cereal, side dish, or in soups. The flour is mixed with other gluten-flours in baking. It contains protein, dietary fiber, B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, thiamin, and zinc.
