Socca…French Flatbread

1 cup of chickpea flour also know as garbanzo bean flour

1 cup of H2O; may need more for thin consistency

1/2 tsp. Himalayan sea salt…I don’t like to use a lot of salt but you can salt it to your liking;-)

1 1/2 tbs. of olive oil

1/4 tsp of dried Italian blend herbs

Mix ingredients and let rest for 2-3 hours, then place in the refrigerator for four more hours…the texture is better when it has rested for a day if time permits….

Broil a cast iron skillet in the oven for 2-3 minutes

Pour a thin layer of the batter in the skillet and broil/cook for 2-4 minutes

Play around with the ingredients to suit your taste buds!!! Similar to the chickpea pancake recipe that I posted last week, minus the baking soda….Health is Wealth!!!

Homemade Pizza

Homemade Chickpea Flatbread Pizza

Ok.. You can make this using Socca, also known as chickpea flatbread ( see my recipe for this), or you can use pita bread. Either way it is good and a healthier twist on one of America’s favorite. I used cashew “cheese” instead of regular cheese.

Recipe:
1) Lightly cover bread with sunflower oil
2) Crush 2-3 cloves of garlic spread on of bread
3) Sprinkle a little Himalayan Pink salt, ground pepper, rosemary, oregano, and basil; dried or fresh
4) Spread 1-2 tbs of Contadina tomato paste, I use this brand because it’s just tomatoes
5) Add veggies, my favorites are spinach,lacinto kale, portabella mushrooms, artichokes, orange/yellow/red bell peppers and tomatoes. I usually choose three out of those selections as well as add a sprinkle more of herbs/pepper and a splash more oil on the tomatoes. I used lacinto kale, orange bell peppers, and tomatoes in this picture;-)
6)Add your chose of cheese…see my recipe on cashew cheese
7) Cook at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes…until bread is crisp and cheese has melted
8)Enjoy!!! Add crushed peppers for an extra kick…Health is Wealth!!!

Cashew Cheese

Cashew Cheese

I have been wanting to make this for a long time!!! It is delicious and easy to make. Before letting it stand at room temperature for a day, it reminded me of garlic butter that you get from the Mediterranean restaurant. After a few days of “aging” it taste just like cheese. I tried it on my homemade pizza and raw lasagna..Delicious!!!

Recipe:
1 1/2 cup of cashews soaked for 2 hours in cold H2O
1/3 H2O
2 tsp lemon juic
2-3 cloves of garlic (I’m a garlic head so I used about 5 cloves)
1/2 tsp of Himalayan Sea Salt

Combine ingredients and blend for 5 minutes or until smooth
Let stand at room temperature for 1-2 days to “age” then refrigerate
Lasts up to 5 days…Mine was gone by day three;-)))

Chickpea Pancakes

Chickpea Pancakes

Delicious and savory!! I made another batch yesterday to go with my homemade hummus. Great alternative for a gluten-free diet!! Go to the link below for the recipe. I added 4-5 garlic cloves, Himalayan Pink salt, ground ginger, and diced up yellow/red/orange bell peppers. I also used sunflower seed oil to cook them in. Sesame oil is great too!!
