This salad is great as a standalone meal and is also fabulous alongside roasted or barbecued lamb!

Originating in Ethiopia, teff is an ancient grain that has a mild nutty flavour and is a great addition to salads, porridge, stews, risottos and baking.

As with all ancient grains, teff is credited with being highly nutritious and a good source of iron, manganese, calcium and protein.


  • 3 tablespoons Pams Pure Olive Oil
  • ¾ cup Pams Superfoods Teff
  • 1 head cauliflower, divided into florets
  • 1 teaspoon sumac
  • 1 1/3 cups Pams Vegetable stock, heated
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 400g can Pams Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped mint
  • 1/3 cup Pams Hempseed and Honey Vinaigrette


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large wide based frying pan or saucepan over a medium heat.
  2. Add the teff and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat the grains with oil.
  3. Pour over the stock. Bring to the boil and then cover and simmer over a low heat for 7-8 minutes until all liquid has been absorbed.  
  4. Remove from the heat, fluff with a fork and leave to sit for a further 10 minutes before turning out into a shallow dish to cool completely.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  6. Arrange the cauliflower in a roasting dish, drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with sumac and sea salt and toss to combine.
  7. Roast the cauliflower for 20 minutes or until golden but be careful not to overcook.
  8. In a large salad bowl combine the teff, cauliflower, onion, chickpeas, parsley and mint.
  9. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and toss to combine.
