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.

If you’re looking for something more filling, top the socca with our Lamb Chops with Olive and Herb Crust, and serve with a Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette.

What to buy: Garbanzo bean flour can be found at most health food stores or online at Bob’s Red Mill.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until large lumps of flour are incorporated and mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes; do not overmix. Cover and rest in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
  2. 2Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add about 1 teaspoon olive oil and swirl it around to coat the pan. Add 1/4 cup batter and quickly rotate the pan to spread evenly (so it’s thin like a crepe).
  1. 1Cook about 3 minutes, or until socca is slightly brown on the edges. Run a spatula underneath to loosen socca from the pan, and remove from heat. Repeat with remaining batter.
  2. 2Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve.
