Teff, which has roots in the Ethiopian word for “lost,” is a very fine whole grain named for its small size. Though it can be easily lost in a dish, this ancient grain dating back to 4000 BC is very high in calcium and provides all of the essential amino acids. To match teff’s Ethiopian heritage, we added coriander, a spice related to cilantro.
