Ok so it’s official. I’ve finally made a Socca. Something I thought was going to be really really hard, but turned out to be the easiest thing ever. It’s literally two ingredients. Yup. Two!
Socca is super popular in the chic town of Nice located in the South of France. I’ve been desperately trying to convince Richard to go, however at the moment this easy treat is as close to Nice as I’m getting. I must admit that this fun twist on the classic snack definitely transported me out of the May gray that is happening in San Diego though. #alwaysasilverliving
Now, like I was saying, all you need to create this easy gluten free and vegan flat bread is two simple ingredients! The first ingredient is Chickpea Flour which is super affordable and pretty accessible. You can either pick it up at your local health food store, or if you’re into a deal you can order it from Thrive Market like me! I love Thrive Market because it’s basically like if Whole Foods and Costco had a baby and delivered it right to your doorstep! Plus if you’re new to Thrive they’re giving all my readers an extra 25% off their already discounted prices. If Thrive isn’t your thing you can easily order from Amazon as well. I like Bob’s Red Mill brand.
The second ingredient is good ol’ fashioned water! Which isn’t as daunting to find as chickpea flour so I have a feeling you’re going to be just fine with this ingredient. When you mix them together you’re definitely going to want to let the batter sit for a good 30 minutes to make sure it sets. I’m reliving the process of making this right now and I cannot even begin to tell you how easy it is! Well, I mean, I think I’m actually doing that right now…
The only real tool you need to make this a success is a cast iron skillet and believe me if you don’t have one it is time to pick one up! Now my favorite thing about Socca is that it is very versatile. Naturally it is made to be a savory dish but it worked so well with all the sweet toppings I threw on it. It is my hope that you use this recipe as a base and just have fun! Maybe you’ll even tag me in your photos that you post to social media? @paulfishman please and #thankyou!
Some other great ways that you could use this Socca bread is for a gluten free pizza crust, easy garlic bread for dipping, a pita bread substitute, or imagine it slathered in Nutella with bananas… and those are just some ideas off the top of my head. How would you use this easy bread recipe? Let me know in the comments!
Now, if you’re familiar with my recipes you know that I love to use super vibrant things like beet crystals and blue spirulina to create some vibrant AF hues and that’s exactly what I did with this special treat. First and foremost I slathered on some Kite Hill Unsweetened Almond Yogurt as a base then sprinkled the beet crystals and spirulina on top and used a spoon to create a spiral pattern. Next I laid down some local organic halved blackberries and raspberries, some granola and chocolate chips plus a drizzle of nut butter and turmeric pearl butter. Finally I sprinkled some dried marigold petals on top because, well, I’m extra… but we all knew this already! Wait, wait, I forgot the mint leaves! yes, I finished the Socca off with mint leaves. I think that’s it 😉
Something else I love about Socca is that in its entirety this recipe is gluten free, vegan, packed with 24 grams of plant protein and 20 grams of fiber… and that isn’t even including any of the toppings.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you know someone who might like it too it would mean the world to me if you shared it with them. Thank you for being here, friend!
