A speciality from the region of Nice, la socca is a little pancake made with olive oil and chickpea flour. Mmm! Delicious with a chilled rosé…



- 150 g (1/4 cup) of chickpea flour

« Available at most Middle Eastern grocers or health food stores » or possibly « You can grind dried chickpeas to a fine consistency in a coffee grinder»

- 200 ml (3/4 cup) water

- 45 ml (3 tablespoons) olive oil

- 3 g (1/4 teaspoon) table salt

- Ground pepper



Preheat pan on stovetop on medium heat

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, stirring well

Add olive oil to the pan

Pour a ladle of the batter (75ml or 1/3 cup) into the pan

Cook like a crêpe, turning once

Enjoy plain or with roasted vegetables, smoked salmon, cheese, etc...


Bon appétit!
