Teff Burgers

200g Outback Harvest Teff Brown Grain
400g water
½ red onion, finely diced
2 spring onions,
finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
¼ cup parsley, chopped
1 tbs fresh thyme, leaves
¼ cup fried shallots
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper
3 tbs oil – for cooking
½ cup Teff – for coating

Cooking Method

  1. Place the Teff grain & cold water in a medium sized pot and cook on low heat for 13 – 14 minutes or until the water has been absorbed & the Teff grain begins to pop and spit.
  2. Whilst hot, stir in all other ingredients and pour into a bowl to cool slightly (Do not place in the fridge).
  3. Once cool enough to handle, measure each burger to approximately 120g or mold into the shape of your bun, then coat with teff.
  4. Allow patties to rest for 20 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Remove patties from the fridge, drizzle oil into a pan and fry on a low.
