Teff – healthy gluten free tiny grains, dark in color but packed with nutrition. It is high in protein and iron with a combination of much needed amino acid. It’s the new super grain that is super tasty and versatile.
I usually like to eat a wholesome salad that is a combination of healthy grains, proteins like tofu, and some greens along with nice flavorful mild dressing that’s quick, easy and enticing. 90% of the times I opt to eat salads for my lunch, and if my husband is travelling my dinner always consist of salads. Not only because it’s healthy but also because it’s easy to fix and serve.
Teff has become my new must have grains and with the addition of tofu in this recipe I added more protein in combination with calcium. With some colorful salad ingredients that were readily available in my refrigerator I simply flavored Teff Tofu Salad with lemon juice, salt and maple syrup to give the tangy, salty and mild sweetness to my meal.
The only thing that needs to be kept in mind is that while cooking Teff it becomes kind of porridge consistency and before tossing this salad make sure to completely cool Teff grains. I paired my salad with sweet pickled ginger that enhanced the flavor of Teff Tofu Salad to new heights.
This salad is a must try and I guarantee you will fall in love with the new super grain Teff. 🙂
