Chocolate Teff Pudding

I’ve been working on my finals for school for the past two weeks and I don’t even remember the last time I went food shopping; so upon completion of my last presentation today, I arrived home with virtually nothing to eat. As I rummaged through the remaining bags of rice, beans, and assorted grains I located a bag of Bob’s Red Mill teff (a nutrient dense Ethiopian grain), and scanned the back for instructions to find something called “Teff Pudding”. Coincidentally, there was exactly 1/2 C of grain left in the bag, so I got to work amending this recipe with my limited kitchen resources, and here’s what I came up with. My version turned out absurdly delicious, and I find it really hard to believe this is made out of whole grains and zero butter. It serves about 2. I’d like to try it with almond or peppermint extract next time, because its super chocolatey!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 C Teff Grain
2 T Water
1/4 C Sugar
1/8 -1/4 C milk
2 tsp Vanilla
3 T Cocoa

DIRECTIONS:
On a stovetop combine Teff and water. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes (or according to instructions on the package). When water is absorbed and the teff becomes porridge-y, remove from heat and add 1/8 C milk, cocoa, sugar, and vanilla. Stir thoroughly Рif you have trouble stirring because the pudding is still too thick, then add a little more milk over low heat until you reach a smooth pudding consistency. Scoop into bowls and serve warm!
