Beet & Feta Socca
Socca (pronounced SO-kah), also known as farinata in Italy, is a thin chickpea crêpe that we use as a sort of gluten-free pizza crust in this healthy recipe. While socca are typically cooked in a woodburning oven in a copper pan, this easier method heats up a cast-iron pan before adding the batter.
To make ahead: Refrigerate socca batter (Step 1) for up to 1 day.
Tips: Chickpea flour made from ground dried chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), is a gluten-free flour used in many traditional Middle Eastern recipes. Look for it in natural-foods stores and/or in well-stocked supermarkets in the gluten-free section. Once opened, store airtight in the freezer.
