I write this as I’m eating teff porridge for breakfast. Yum! I’ve shared a recipe on the blog before, but not since I started making it in my handy dandy Instant Pot. The pressure cooker makes the creamiest, fluffiest teff porridge, and you don’t have to worry about it sticking or burning. Teff porridge has long been one of my favorite breakfasts, but it was reserved for lazy mornings when I didn’t mind standing over the stove and stirring. Thanks to the Instant Pot, I eat it many times a week now!
Don’t know what teff is? Keep reading!

Teff is a tiny grain from East Africa. If you’ve ever eaten Ethiopian food, you’ve probably had injera, a delicious flatbread made with fermented teff flour. Teff is a complete protein, and––like all whole grains––full of fiber. All that protein and fiber is exactly what you need for breakfast to fuel your morning and keep you full for hours. Teff is also a great source of iron (giving 20% of the daily value per serving), calcium, zinc, manganese, and B6. And it’s gluten-free.
Teff has a nutty taste which can be heightened by toasting the grain before cooking. I love topping my teff porridge with toasted nuts to bring out that nutty goodness. It’s particularly delicious sweetened with maple syrup and dates––but isn’t everything? Top it with any fresh fruit, and enjoy it year round! Here’s a link to the teff that I buy on Amazon. It’s even less expensive when bought in bulk at the health food store, but because of COVID I haven’t been able to rely on that.

What a warm, nourishing breakfast for a subzero morning! I’ve made teff porridge on the cooktop up until today, but the IP version is a whole different level! The only change I made was blending a very ripe banana with the water before adding the teff, mostly just to use up the banana but the sweetness it added was so good! Thank you for this recipe!

That was Yummy! Based on the smell of the teff I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy it, but I did. I added in some peanut butter, a little vanilla, a little chia seed and topped with bananas (we didn’t have much good fresh fruit in the house). It was tasty! I only ate about 1/3 of it, that was filling!

I made this today, but modified it slightly and it was delicious. Could only eat half, though, and found it very filling. I substituted the dates for a raw apple grated into it after it was cooked, and served it with a small banana, and this was enough for me. I omitted the seeds etc simply to reduce the calories.

Hi! I love this recipe, but is it really just one serving? I checked the nutritional info and using Bob’s Red Mill, it came to almost 700 calories, and that was without any fruit or dates (but with unsweetened almond milk and maple syrup). I’m super full, so that’s good! But wanted to see if it’s a typo?
Danielle / January 15, 2023 at 12:55 pm /
i found this made more like 3 or 4 servings but ymmv i think!
curious if anyone else had a lot of lumps after the initial IP cooking time. i had to rewhisk it up on saute function quite a bit and then add the plant milk etc.
served it w apple slices yum.

Seems yummy. What’s the best way to cook without an instant pot?
TJ / January 21, 2022 at 4:47 pm /
I made this for my 19 month old and he loved it! So did my husband who is skeptical of anything “healthy”. And it took less than 20 minutes to make, mostly inactive cooking time. Will be making this once a month from now on.

This is lovely – I make it a few times a week – so simple and easy and a great way to use various fruits as they are in season.

Absolutely amazing! There is something SO deeply soul-satisfying about this teff porridge! And it couldn’t be easier to whip together… Perfect breakfast!
