Socca Swooning

Hiiiiii :D How are you? Hope your morning is off to a lovely start! Thanks for the feedback on the WSU Week 2 workout- from what I can hear, you’re loving it so far and feel hardcore in the gym- always a bonus :) Keep rocking it out, my friends.

Last night, I experimented with a new-to-me flour:

chickpea

Chickpea flour!

I’ve always stayed far away from chickpea flour because it tastes like death if you try to eat any dough that’s made with it. I decided to be brave, because my twinnie friends use it to make socca, and socca is DELICIOUS. I had about a thousand pieces when Michelle (my Foodbuzz roomie) brought a stash to Foodbuzz festival :)

I was determined to make socca

and reigned victorious ;)

It was SO EASY. Socca seems like one of those things that everyone says is easy to make, but like all bread products, is kind of intimidating. It’s ridiculously easy, I promise.

All ya do is mix equal parts chickpea flour and water (I used 1/2 of each)

chickpea (2)

season with sea salt and pepper, or fresh herbs if you like

and cook in a skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side, on medium-high heat (using whatever oil you like. I used coconut oil as the twins use, and it was glorious)

skillet

Ka-pow.

socca (2)

I enjoyed my socca with a bag of steamed organic broccoli, topped with organic butter and tamari

and for dessert, a serving of raw choco-cado pudding, using honey instead of agave. thinned out with a little almond milk

pudding

+ tea

It was perfect :D

I’m surprisingly enjoying this detox thang so far. Then again, it’s only Day 2, so we shall see ;)

I’m off to run errands, teach, then look at a house that we could potentially buy if we get stationed here!

See ya later today <3

  12. i bought some chickpea flour on impulse & had no idea what to do with it until now!! this couldnt be easier!

  13. I made a socca variation on yours above of 1/2 flour + 1/2 water.

    I made only 1/3 though, increased the water and used unbleached flour. When it was done I broiled it took a crisp and topped it like a pizza! Thanks…
