Tasty Teff Veggie Loaf

Have you heard of teff? Teff is a small grain, smaller than a poppy seed. It is used most commonly in the flat bread injera, which is eaten across East Africa. But teff can also be added to cakes and muffins, eaten as porridge or used as a polenta replacement in savoury dishes. Another great food suitable for gluten sensitive people.

Ingredients:Teff Veggie Loaf

  • 3 cups water
  • 3 1/2 cups sweet potato, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup teff grains
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup leek, chopped
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 cups greens (spinach, kale or bok choy)
  • 1/2 cup coriander, finely cut
  • 1/2 cup chives, finely cut
  • Optional: extra seasoning to taste and grated cheese for topping


  1. Bring water, sweet potatoes, teff and salt to boil in a pot. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for about 20 minutes.
  2. While the teff mixture simmers, heat sauce pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, leek, fennel and cumin seeds and sauté 2 – 3 minutes or until fragrant. Stir in greens and sauté for about another 3 minutes.
  3. Transfer the green mixture to the teff mixture, cover, and continue to simmer another few minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  4. Turn off the heat and stir in coriander and chives. Add extra seasoning if desired.
  5. Spoon mixture into an un-oiled loaf pan and sprinkle with cheese (optional). Let it stand about 30 minutes, or until firm.
  6. Cut into slices and serve.

"I was getting bad headaches about every month for decades The headaches were severe enough to require a lot of Panadol, which I didn’t like taking. After Anita carried out a thorough assessment of my health, she advised a simple change in eating patterns and a herbal supplement. I have not had a headache for five months now and my overall health and energy levels have never been better." — John
I loved your approach: warm and professional, friendly and calm. I came away with lots of hope and feel better just for that. I really liked the simplicity of your approach and appreciated that you didn't overload me with supplements or things to do. Seemed a lovely balance of dealing with the most important in a simple, practical way. And I liked that you were very attuned to what would actually work for me. — Chantal
Great to catch up again yesterday, E. and I are really enjoying our new "Wellness Journey" together, so thank you so much for all of your help and guidance so far. Pleased to say Coffee has not passed my lips since our first meeting, and also my weight has reduced considerably, which is all good news. — I.K. from Canberra
Anita’s input was extremely useful. Her state-of the-art machine detected some intolerance to certain food groups from a mere hair sample. Anita’s findings quickly resolved my on-an-off bloating sensation and lethargic state. Not bad for a Canberra-based Swissie.  — Cécile in Sydney
I would just like to share my experiences with Missing Link. I found the service impeccable. Not only was Anita warm and friendly but her professional knowledge is amazing. Through a few relevant questions and the biofeedback machine, useful details about my health were discovered that otherwise may have gone untreated or unnoticed for years and years. Anita is thorough and the results were fast, accurate and explained in a way that was meaningful and personal. - Michael
