Whole Grain Teff is a tiny grain that has been a staple of traditional Ethiopian cooking for thousands of years. It has a mild, nutty flavor and is a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Try teff in porridge or stew. Delicious on its own or combined with other grains and vegetables.


Add a little adventure to everyday meals with teff, a tiny whole grain that has been a staple of traditional Ethiopian cooking for thousands of years. Whole Grain Teff (Tef, T'ef) an ancient East African cereal grass, is a nutritional powerhouse. It is the smallest grain in the world (about 100 grains are the size of a kernel of wheat!). The germ and bran, where the nutrients are concentrated, account for a larger volume of the seed compared to more familiar grains.

With a mild, nutty flavor and lots of calcium, protein and fiber, whole grain teff is a great addition to porridge, stews, pilaf or baked goods. Cooked whole grain teff makes a unique hot breakfast cereal similar in consistency and texture to wheat farina. Teff can be made into polenta, added to veggie burgers, cakes, cookies and breads. Naturally gluten free, teff is a wonderful way to mix up your menu with something a bit exotic.

  1. Fabulous

    by Martin on 02 Wed,2017


    We just tried teff for the first time tonight. The teff stew recipe on the package was delicious & we're looking forward to trying it in porridge and in bread soon.

  2. Awesomeness!!!

    by Tre on 01 Sat,2017


    With my son having eczema there are many things that I can't eat. I love to have warm cereal at any time of the day. I was excited to find out about a gluten free grain that wasn't too expensive. I made the porridge and have not looked back as it is now a part of my daily breakfast. So glad they made this grain available to us! I absolutely LOVE it!!!!!

  3. Love this stuff!

    by Sparkparker on 09 Fri,2016


    I still haven't made it to the porridge recipe! I've just been following the "Basic Cooking Instructions," and I've become totally addicted! I add fresh or frozen peaches or cherries a few minutes before it's done cooking, then add a little maple syrup and almond milk. It makes a great breakfast, but sometimes I eat it for lunch or an afternoon snack. I love it so much! It reminds me of Cream of Wheat, but more flavorful and way more nutritious. I'm thinking of including teff in my Christmas gifts this year, so I can spread the word, because it's SO GOOD!

  4. Teff Polenta is perfect!

    by April on 08 Sat,2016


    I made Teff Polenta with simply butter and salt and poured into a 9x13 pan and chilled overnight. The next morning I diced and fried up bacon in a pan, transferred to a paper towel, increased the heat to medium and fried the Polenta squares in the bacon fat, lowered the heat again, fried an egg, and then tossed in the hot pan to warm some fresh diced tomatoes and baby asparagus I got from my garden. I topped the fried Polenta squares with a slice of cheddar cheese, a fried egg, bacon bits, and the fresh warmed diced tomatoes and baby asparagus. It was perfect! The egg provided a lovely sauce, the dish was colorful and very flavorful! It was good! Family approved!!

  5. Chill Teff Porridge for Dessert bars

    by April on 08 Fri,2016


    I tried Teff for the first time this morning. I made the Teff Porridge recipe on the package substituting fresh bananas for the dates. I didn't really care for the porridge. I poured the leftover porridge into a glass dish, pressed toasted pecans into the top and chilled it. After lunch, I cut "bars" from the chilled porridge, sprinkled cinnamon, and drizzled honey over top. It made a great dessert! We really liked eating it that way!

  6. Love Teff Porridge!

    by Angie on 04 Sat,2016


    Tried Teff for the 1st time this a.m. Made Teff Porridge (recipe on label) omitting the dates. Husband & I both enjoyed it. Similar to Cocoa Wheats in texture & appearance, but flavor is mildly nutty & sweet. Looking forward to trying it in other recipes.

  7. Great product

    by Kelly on 03 Sat,2016


    I am new to "Teff". I bought the brown variety because it reminded me of Cocoa Wheat cereal. I like it as a hot cereal with sugar free cashew milk. Great taste and healthy!!

  8. Delicious! Worth trying!

    by A on 10 Fri,2015


    Really delicious! I made the porridge recipe on the label with molasses instead of honey, and topped it with a bit of margarine, walnuts, and rice milk! Very good, not boring porridge!

  9. Great on Salads!

    by Regina, Gluten- on 03 Wed,2015

    Being a Gluten-Free, Vegan, I find myself eating lots of salads! LOL! I bought Teff to cook like a grain in place of rice, wheat, etc. I haven't cooked any yet, but instead decided to try it on my salad. It was awesome! As a Vegan, I have trouble maintaining a healthy weight and tend to be a little underweight. So, I was very happy to see that Teff only has 1 gram of fat per 1/4 cup, but that

  10. Teff as a replacement for Flax Seeds

    by Russ on 05 Wed,2014

    I recently made Five-grain Bread and ran out of flax seeds. I was in a hurry and did not have time to go the store. I remembered that on a whim I had purchased teff seeds. So, I decided the worst that could happen would be I threw the bread away.||Should not have worried. The results of a mixture of flax and teff seeds gave the bread a very interesting flavor and that rules, as Reinhart so aptly s

  11. This cereal is unbelievably good!

    by Laughing Larry on 09 Wed,2011

    This cereal is really easy to use. Microwave works great. My family eats this with chopped dates and local, organic Honey. Died and went to breakfast heaven!

  12. Tastiest cereal I've ever had!

    by northwest jim on 01 Tue,2011

    I haven't gotten into making other dishes with this because it is so good plain. It is my favorite hot cereal with just a pinch of sea salt and a pat of butter. Everybody who I have made some for has 1) never seen it before and 2)likes the nutty flavor. Tastes great and good for you...what a combination!

  13. A Perfect Food

    by Mary on 01 Wed,2011

    Thank you for the recipes you provide on the back of the bag. Consistent with my past experiences with other Bob's Red Mill products, I tried your Teff Porridge recipe and loved it. I've been integrating Teff in my diet since seeing it listed in a major magazine as one of 10 most perfect foods, but at first I had trouble finding ways to use it. Your website has also been very helpful to provide re

  14. Versatile and Very Good!

    by Quinn's Mom on 08 Sat,2010

    Teff is an excellent and versatile food. From teff burgers to chocolate teff pudding to injera flatbread, it makes flavorful and good for you food.||Of all the alternative grains, this is on of our family's favorites.

  15. Teff is my favorite grain

    by Amazon Tea Lady on 08 Thu,2010

    I love teff. It has as much protein (7 gm) as an egg, is gluten free, and has a nutty, molasses like flavor, unlike any other grain. It cooks in just 15 minutes. I cook it with cinnamon, allspice and cardamon, and serve it with milk and nuts, creating a breakfast that lasts me all morning. It is also tasty cooked with broth for a side dish, or add some of the uncooked grain into your next soup.

  16. WOW!

    by luckylocallady on 07 Wed,2010

    I am so glad I picked up this product. It is incredible. It has a delicious sweet and nutty flavor. With a crisp texture that is similar to quinoa. I ate it for breakfast with a tablespoon of honey and a splash of milk.||YUM!
