Buttermilk-Teff Biscuits with Green Onions

Makes about 12 biscuits
Time 30 min
The addition of whole grain flour adds flavor and texture to these otherwise traditional Southern-style biscuits. Buttermilk helps to tenderize the dough, as well as provides that characteristic "twang" that contrasts the otherwise rich flavors in the finished product.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup teff or other whole grain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced and chilled
  • 6 green onions, very thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • Shredded parmesan for sprinkling (optional)

Method

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Sift flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. 

Add butter and use your fingertips or a pastry cutter to work butter into flour until no pieces larger than peas remain.

Stir in green onions and buttermilk, stirring just until mixed.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, gather it into a ball and knead once or twice.

Press down until dough is about 1/2-inch thick.

Cut out biscuits with a round 2 1/2-inch cutter or the top of a glass.

Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.

Press scraps together and cut out more biscuits.

Brush tops of biscuits with milk; if you like, sprinkle tops with a pinch of Parmesan.

Bake until biscuits are risen and just golden on the bottoms, 12 to 13 minutes.

Serve warm or room temperature.
