Instant Pot Method

  1. Combine teff grains, water and salt, if using, in your Instant Pot. Make sure the lid gasket is placed correctly, lock the lid and close the vent.
  2. Cook on high pressure for 7 minutes. Release pressure with ‘quick release’ method.
  3. Once all pressure has been released, open your pot and stir immediately to allow the teff grains to absorb any remaining water that appears on the top.
  4. Serve with your choice of toppings.
