Have you heard of Socca?
A chickpea flour bread/snack from France.
Well, it sounded delish to me (and it is gluten free) so I decided yesterday was the day to give it a whirl.
Be sure to give yourself time because the batter needs about 2 hours before it is cooked.
Basically, you mix 1 cup of chickpea flour (check Wholepaycheck), 1 cup of water, a dash of cumin, 3/4tsp salt and 1.5 Tbsp of olive oil and let stand for 2 hours.
Oil a cast iron fry pan (heat in oven) and set your oven to broil; pour batter into hot pan and place under broiler.
The socca turned out more bready and less crackery than the recipe appears to show and having never had socca before I had little experience in knowing exactly but it was super tasty.
Place hot socca on a cutting board and generously season with salt and freshly ground pepper (and a drizzle of olive oil) and eat warm.
Share with your children until only crumbs remain.
I will be making this snack again.
The recipe I used was from David Lebovitz, check it out.
