Socca (Chickpea Flatbread)
Author: Allie
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
Total time: 50 mins
  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ of cups water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Add the flour and salt to a large mixing bowl. Slowly pour in the water, whisking to get rid of any lumps. Cover with a towel, and let it sit, while oven heats or up to 12 hours. The batter should be pretty runny.
  2. When ready to bake, heat the oven to 450 degrees. Put the oil in a deep 12-inch round pan or skillet and place in the heated oven. Wait a few minutes for the oil to get hot, but not smoking. Carefully remove the pan and pour in the batter. Return the skillet to the oven.
  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the flatbread is browned on top and crisp around the edges.
  4. Let it cool slightly in the pan, then remove it using a narrow spatula and sliding it under the bottom. Cut or tear into wedges and serve.
