TEFF SEED COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Method 1: Microwave Cooking (Quick & Simple)
Cooking teff seeds in the microwave is our preferred method! This method reduces the starchiness of the seed and will create a light fluffy texture, similar to that of couscous. Best cooked in the microwave when using teff seeds in salads or as a rice replacement.
Follow these 4 simple steps:
Add 1 cup of teff seed into a microwaveable bowl/container.
Add 2 cups of boiling water.
With the lid off, microwave for approx. 10 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed (no need to stir halfway through).
Remove from microwave and use a folk to ‘fluff up’ and separate the teff seeds. Let cool for approx. 5 mins and fluff up a second time whilst still hot to get the best result.
Place in the fridge to cool for use in salads or serve hot with your meal.
