Socca is a crisp pancake-like flat bread made from chickpea flour. It is sold by street vendors in the south of France. Gluten free and has the same simple ingredients as panisse: chickpea flour, water, salt and olive oil. Makes a great side for salads or left whole and filled with a soft cheese, seasoned and folded.
2-1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil2 cups Water (cold)
2 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Ground Pepper
Mix rosemary, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper in a small container and set aside.
Combine chickpea flour, 1/2 cup of olive oil and water in a mixing bowl and whisk until large lumps of flour are incorporated and mixture thickens slightly. Do not over mix.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat, once pan is hot add 1 tsp of olive oil and swirl it around to coat the pan.
Pour enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan. Loosely cover with a lid and allow to cook until it’s firm enough to turn over.
Sprinkle some of the rosemary/pepper/kosher salt mixture on the browned side and continue to cook until done, about 3 or 4 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Cut into wedges and serve.
Variation: Make with half Bob’s Red Mill GF Millet Flour
