Socca is the easiest bread you could ever hope to make! Only 2 ingredients (besides water and sat), it is naturally vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, and extremely versatile (snacks, appetizers, breakfast, side-dish).




  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, warm water, HALF of the olive oil, and the salt until blended and perfectly smooth (break up any small lumps).
  2. Cover and let batter stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes (or refrigerate for up to 24 hours).
  3. When ready to cook, position oven rack to 6 inches below broiler. Preheat oven to 450F. Place a 9-inch or 10-inch cast iron skillet on the top rack.
  4. When the oven reaches 450F and the skillet is very hot, add the remaining oil; let heat for 30 seconds, then add the batter. Cook for 7 to 9 minutes until set and the socca is pulling away for the edges of the pan.
  5. Keep the skillet in the oven. Switch the oven setting to Broil (HIGH). Broil for 1 to 4 minutes, checking regularly, until dark golden brown at edges and browned in spots on the surface of the socca.
  6. Remove from oven (be careful skillet will be very hot) and cut into wedges. Serve warm.


Storage: Store the cooled socca wedges in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Rewarm for 15 to 30 seconds in the microwave, or in a hot skillet on the stovetop.
Warm water: Warm water is not essential, but it will make it much easier to blend the batter and break up any lumps or bumps.
