Recipe type: Vegan
Cuisine: Breakfast
Serves: 2 serves
  • ½ cup teff grains
  • 1 ½ cup filtered water
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 apple, cored and cubed
  • Handful of your fave nuts (i.e. walnuts, pecan, almonds)
  • ¼ cup nut milk or coconut milk
  • Drizzle of raw honey or pure maple syrup to taste
  1. In a small saucepan on med heat, add teff grains and toast (stirring occasionally) for about 5 minutes until you can hear some of them start to pop. (Toasting brings out their nutty flavour.)
  2. Let pan cool slightly before adding water to toasted teff grains (otherwise the water might boil and splash up). Add dates, cinnamon too and stir well to combine.
  3. Bring to a gentle boil, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until teff is softened and thickened into a porridge consistency. (If porridge is too thick, you can add more liquid and give it a quick stir at the end.)
  4. Serve immediately into bowls, top with nut milk, fruit and nuts, drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
