Socca is a popular street food in Nice, France, and is often enjoyed as an appetizer. It is also known as Farinata in Italy. The original recipe uses copious amounts of olive oil in the batter and is also served with a herb and garlic infused olive oil dressing. When I came across this recipe what excited me was it is a baked dish and gluten-free! We can find many ways to use this bread.

  • Chickpeas flour: 1 cup
  • Water: 1 cup
  • Cold-pressed coconut oil: 2 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds: 1tsp
  • Red chili flakes: ½ tsp
  • Rock salt: to taste

  • Whisk chickpeas flour, water, salt and mixed herbs.
