SOCCA: Chickpea Pancakes

I woke up missing the south of France! I once lived in Monaco for 4 months and would go to Nice to eat my favorite street food: SOCCA. Made from chickpea flour, socca is naturally gluten free, vegan and has a bit of protein.  Traditionally you’d eat socca plain, but I like to top it with anything I’m craving to make a pizza/crepe like meal. In the photo below I went with wilted arugula, spicy chicken sausage and sautéed onion and red peppers.

Combine and mix all ingredients well in large bowl.  Coat a hot non-stick pan with oil.  Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan and shift it around until it thinly covers the entire base of the pan evenly.  Cook for 3 min and flip-the edges should be crispy.  Drizzle with oil (I use flax) and salt and pepper.

Yields 4-5  pancakes

  • 2 cups chickpea flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cumin
