Teff is one of the newest ancient grains to pop up in health food circles. It is known as the foundation to the traditional Ethiopian bread, injera, and packs plenty of fiber and protein. Teff has a mild taste and in this teff bread recipe, it supports a gluten free, vegan bread that is moist, dense and completely guilt-free. Enjoy!
