Socca Swooning

Hiiiiii ๐Ÿ˜€ 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, youโ€™re loving it so far and feel hardcore in the gym- always a bonus ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep rocking it out, my friends.

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


Chickpea flour!

Iโ€™ve always stayed far away from chickpea flour because it tastes like death if you try to eat any dough thatโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™‚

I was determined to make socca


and reigned victorious ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. Itโ€™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)



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


+ tea

It was perfect ๐Ÿ˜€

Iโ€™m surprisingly enjoying this detox thang so far. Then again, itโ€™s only Day 2, so we shall see ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™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

    That Socca looks soooooooo good! I am making an eggplant celery stew for dinner, and that sounded like the PERFECT accompaniment for my dinner! Sadly, my local supermarket didn’t stock the floud ๐Ÿ™ Gotta hit up WholeFoods ASAP — thanks for the idea!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never heard of socca before but it looks so yummy and easy! It would be fun to stuff them and make savory crepes. ๐Ÿ˜€

    hmm, i’ve never heard of chickpea flour before! Looks just like “regular” flour though, so can’t be bad! : )

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

  13. Peanut Butter Lover on December 29, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    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…
