Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo Bean flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 clove garlic

Instructions

  • Combine flour, water, salt, cumin, thyme, garlic and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a bowl. Let the batter rest for 2 hours, covered, at room temperature.
  • Then preheat your broiler. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to a 10-inch skillet and heat the skillet in the oven for 4 minutes.
  • Then remove the skillet from the oven and pour the batter into the skillet. (You may use half the batter and make two if you prefer a thinner flatbread)
  • Broil for about 8 minutes. Slice and serve.

Notes

  • The French sprinkle their socca with salt and pepper, drizzle it with olive oil and eat it off a napkin. You can serve it with your favorite toppings. Spread pesto sauce on it, or brown gravy (gluten free gravy recipes here.) or whatever you like.
  • Your approximate preparation time is only 5 minutes, but allow 2 hours for the batter to rest.
