1/2 recipe

½ cup teff

1 cup water

1 ¼ cups soy milk, divided (can substitute almond milk or another milk)

1 small sweet potato, cooked and mashed (skins discarded)

1 tablespoon maple syrup

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ cup chopped pecans

  1. Combine the teff, water, and 1 cup of the soy milk in a medium pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and let simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes to prevent sticking at the bottom of the pot.
  3. Once most of the liquid is absorbed, stir in the sweet potato so that it is well distributed throughout the porridge.
  4. Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and the remaining ¼ cup soy milk, and stir until porridge reaches desired texture. (You can add more milk to thin it out.)
  5. Divide into 2 portions, then top each portion with 2 tablespoons chopped pecans.
