Teff Patties

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 50
Yield: 6 patties


1 cup teff
3 cups water
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cloves garlic pressed
3 scallion chopped
2 tablespoons sesame or olive oil


1. Place the teff, water, and salt in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the teff is thick. Stir a couple times toward the end of cooking.
2. Transfer the cooked teff to a shallow dish. Add the thyme, garlic, and scallions, and mix well. Let the mixture sit until it is cool enough to handle. Shape into 6 patties and set aside.
3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the patties about 5 minutes on each side or until browned.
4. Serve the patties as is or topped with your favorite sauce. The Tahini-Miso Sauce, Golden Cashew Cream, and Down South “Milk” Gravy are my favorites.
