Easy Upgrades – Injera: How to Make Gluten-Free Fermented Flatbread Using Teff (Video)

By Malcolm Saunders | Videos

Jul 22

In this episode of Easy Upgrades, Malcolm will introduce you to Teff, the smallest grain in the world. Teff is a gluten-free grain with a great nutrient profile that can be fermented and cooked to create breads, wraps, and flatbreads!



1. Grind 1 cup of Teff to a flour & place in a mixing bowl.
2. Add 1/4 cup of starter i.e. whey, or water from fermented pickles or sauerkraut.
3. Add 3/4 cup water.
4. Stir all ingredients with non-metal utensil.

Cover with cloth or cheesecloth, and let ferment 2-4 days and be sure to stir the mixture a couple times per day as it ferments. Leave out, in room temperature (the warmer, the less time it will take to ferment).


1. Separate what you want to use for the day, and if you want you can thin it out by adding a little bit more water and give it a stir to create an even and consistent batter. (The remaining fermented Teff now acts as a mother that will continue to ferment, and you should add more ground Teff to it to continue producing more. Simply repeat the steps of stirring the mixture several times during the day while letting it ferment).
2. Heat and lightly grease a non-stick pan (medium-high heat).
3. Pour batter into pan and cover.
4. Once first side is cooked through, flip and cook the other side.

Enjoy as a pancake, flatbread, naan, or wrap.
