Injera is the national dish in Ethiopia. It’s a spongy flatbread that’s served with stews and salads. If you haven’t tried it, run out to your nearest supermarket buy teff flour and make some at home or go try it at an Ethiopian restaurant.
Teff is traditionally used in Ethiopia as flour to make the injera bread but it also naturally makes a great wheat flour alternative for those who follow a gluten-free lifestyle. Breads, cookies, pancakes, you name it, teff can do it. It can be used as a porridge treated like polenta or it can be used to thicken soups and stews but all with a nutritional punch.
