TEFF, SORGHUM, and QUINOA FLOUR recipe ROUNDUP: 90+ sweet and savoury recipes

(Approx. reading time 5 mins 0 secs)

To finish my post series on wheat flour alternatives, I’m focusing on 3 harder to find flours. However, if you do come across them and they are within your budget, I encourage you to buy them. The flavours and textures you can create are so different and interesting. You won’t be disappointed.

You can read more about why I think flour is so important to have around here.

Check all the posts where I talk about flour.

Teff flour recipes

Most people will probably have never heard of teff. It is a very small seed, mostly used in Ethiopian cuisine. Some people may have experienced it when eating injera, but not realised it was made from teff.

The flavour is quite nutty and, as it’s quite obvious by the recipes below, it goes great with chocolate and all sorts of nuts and seeds. It can also be used in porridge, and all the toppings used with oats can be used with teff too.

Sorghum flour recipes

Jowar flour or sorghum flour is most often used in African and Asian cuisines. Elsewhere, it is generally used as animal feed, which is such a pity because sorghum is absolutely delicious!

Sorghum flour is one of the hardest to find for those in Europe and America. You can usually find it in health food shops, Asian stores (Indian ones mostly), or the international section of larger supermarkets (or very occasionally in the baking section), and when all else fails: online.

Quinoa flour recipes

A few years ago only people from a small area of the world knew what quinoa was. Now, we can even find it in discount supermarkets, right next to cheap bags of rice!

And with that growing popularity, came a plethora of products based on quinoa. Flour is just one of them. If you can’t find quinoa flour, it is easy to make at home with just a blender or very powerful food processor.

As usual, all these recipes are for quinoa flour only and don’t require any other flours. I tried to keep the links limited to websites without much scrolling, but if a blog does have some I let you know.
