Pumpkin pie Teff porridge (v,gf)

Pumpkin pie Teff porridge

After trying Teff for the first time I fell in love with it. I mean sure oatmeal is amazing but sometimes I want something new and gluten free is always good. Teff is like a creamy porridge. In my family we eat lots of cream or rice porridge but you know it as cream of wheat porridge.
don’t be hesitant because Teff is so brown in color because you’ll miss out on the delicious breakfast!

Teff. I used Bob’s red mill Teff but any Teff brand should work.
Coconut milk. I used canned coconut milk but I think any dairy free milk canned or not will work.
Pumpkin purée. I used 2 tbsp of pumpkin purée but I might add a little more.
Vegan butter. Any vegan butter brand should work even normal butter if your non-vegan.
Brown sugar. Organic sugar is always best but maple syrup would be great.
Pepitas and pecans. The nuts and seeds are totally optional but they are delicious.
