Like crepes? Than you’re going to love socca. This thin chickpea flour pancake hails from Nice, but it’s rarely seen outside the South of France (except in Genoa where’s it called a farinata), and we think it merits wider recognition. Add a flavorful filling—we like it with a dollop of fresh goat cheese and lots of freshly ground black pepper—fold it up, and polish a few off for a delicious snack.
What to buy: Garbanzo bean flour can be found at most health food stores or online at Bob’s Red Mill.
