By far the best way to cook teff seed is in the microwave. This method reduces the starchiness of the seed and will give you a fluffy texture similar to couscous. This method is best when using teff for salads or as a rice replacement.
To achieve a nice fluffy textured just follow these simple steps:
-Add 1 cup of brown teff into a microwaveable bowl/container.
-Add 2 cups of boiling water.
-Place the microwave safe container (lid off) in the microwave for approx. 10 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed. No need to stir halfway through.
-To achieve a fluffy texture, separate the teff grains by fluffing them with a fork after removing from the microwave.
-Let cool for approx. 5 mins and fluff a second time.
-Place in the fridge to cool for use in salads or serve hot with your meal.
