Have you ever tried teff bread? It’s a sour, fluffy bread that’s very popular in Ethiopia. It normally takes days to ferment, but with yogurt and club soda, you can speed up the process and create a delicious, light bread! It goes well with many dishes, but my favorite is to serve it with a spicy red lentil stew for a full Ethiopian meal.
