Socca

Socca is an awesome gluten free & vegan flatbread made from chickpea flour! I've been completely addicted to it ever since one of my friends made it for us at a "bring 3 ingredients and cook whatever you want party." Yea...As chefs we throw wild and crazy cooking parties. ;)

But being natural foods chefs we pay extra attention to what goes into our bodies and we try to find new and exciting ways to help people eat a bit healthier! In this case though I found inspiration in something that has been around for hundreds of years!

So grab yourself a few ingredients & a cast iron pan...then let your creativity bloom! You can litterally use this flat bread in so many different ways!

For example :

  • Socca Pizza
  • Socca with falafel
  • Socca with muhammara
  • Sweet Socca
  • Salty Socca
  • Sour Socca

I think you get the point. :)

Now grab this recipe, share it with friends, and let me know what you think in the comments or on Facebook and twitter!

Ingredients

1 cup chickpea flour

1 cup + 2 tbsp. filtered water

1 tsp Himalayan pink salt

2 tbsp good olive oil

a pinch or two of whatever herbs or spices you would like. (In this video I use a pinch of cumin.)

How To

1. Combine all of the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until it's about the consistency of a crepe batter! It'll be very thin, but once it chills in the fridge the consistency is just right.

2. Put it into the fridge for at least 2 hours. This is something you can prepare ahead of time.

3. Turn your broiler onto high and place a cast iron skillet underneath to get screaming hot!

4. Once the pan is nice and hot you can get your batter out of the fridge and start making socca! All you do is put a bit of oil in the bottom of your skillet. (about 1/2 tbsp.) Then ladle about 4 oz. of batter in, swirling the pan to cover the bottom completely with batter. Now just pop it back under the broiler and cook until it's nice and crispy with some gorgeous brown color on the top!

5. These usually take around 6 minutes or so to cook and once their done, the options are limitless! In this video I put some vegan tzatziki sauce on top with some fennel frawns!
