I love Saturday morning. I get to sleep in, and I get to make breakfast (or lunch, depending on how long I sleep in…). During the week I eat my beloved GreenMax in my office after Matins, but Saturday I can experiment.
So I have this HUGE jar of teff flour, and I guess I’m hooked on it and determined to use all of it up as quickly as possible. This morning I made teff porridge – basically, just another Lenten gruel.
Keep stirring occasionally to keep it from getting lumpy. It was amazing to me how smooth this got just stirring it with a wooden spoon. If you tried, for example, to make gravy that way using regular flour, you’d have a lumpy mess!
Optional: margarine and cinnamon, with a bit of salt. I’ve read you don’t need to add anything to this, but I prefer it with a little something. But if during Lent you wanted an oil-free food for a strict fasting day, I think it would be okay to leave out the margarine (maybe add 1/2 Tbsp of tahini to get your fat). I wouldn’t leave out the cinnamon or pinch of salt, though!
This makes two servings, so you can share it with someone you love (or eat two servings yourself, that’s what I did). Enjoy!
