Astragalus Teff Bread (Recipe by Iris Suurland)

Level:EasyTime:20 minsServes:8


Teff bread is a delicious and nutritious alternative to traditional wheat bread. Made from teff flour, this bread is gluten-free and packed with nutrients. Teff is a small, gluten-free grain that is native to Ethiopia, and has been a staple of Ethiopian cuisine for thousands of years.

Not only is teff bread delicious, but it's also incredibly nutritious. Teff is high in fiber, protein, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, and vitamin C. It's also low in calories and has a low glycemic index, making it a great choice for people who are trying to manage their weight or blood sugar levels.

What makes teff bread stand out from other types of bread is its unique flavor and texture. Teff flour has a nutty and slightly sweet flavor, which gives the bread a distinct taste that pairs well with both sweet and savory toppings. Additionally, teff flour has a naturally dense and chewy texture, which makes it perfect for making flatbreads, pancakes, and other baked goods.

Teff bread is also a great option for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Unlike wheat flour, which contains gluten, teff flour is naturally gluten-free. This means that people with gluten intolerance can enjoy bread without having to worry about any negative side effects.

I love making this beautiful bread once a week and we eat it with stews and soups or bring it with us on roadtrips!
