Garlic and Chive Chickpea Flatbread

Garlic and Chive Chickpea Flatbread

This simple chickpea flatbread is a popular street food in southern France where it goes by the name, socca. It’s full of protein-packed chickpea flour, and herbs or seasonings can be used to create new, unique versions. When making it at home you can eat it alone as a snack, use it as wrap, top it with your favorite spread, or use it as the base for a healthy pizza.

Yield: 2, 12-inch flatbreads (4 servings)

Preparation time: 35 minutes (includes 30 minutes for batter to rest)

Baking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup chickpea flour

1 cup water

1 tbsp + 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp chopped fresh chives

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp garlic powder

Directions

In a medium-size bowl whisk together the chickpea flour, water, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, chives, salt, and garlic powder. Set aside to let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours.

About 10 minutes before you are ready to cook the flatbread, move the top rack in your oven 6 to 8 inches below the broiler. Preheat the broiler.

Place a 12-inch skillet (cast iron works great for this flatbread) in the oven to heat for 5 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven and add the 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Move it around to coat the skillet.

Pour half of the batter (about ¾ cup) into the skillet. Tilt the skillet so that the batter coats the bottom of the pan evenly. Place under the broiler for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the edges begin to crisp and turn up, and the top of the flatbread begins to brown.

Use a spatula to remove the flatbread from the skillet. Repeat the process for the second flatbread. (Only add a little more olive oil if the skillet appears dry.) Slice and serve warm.
