Socca is a crisp pancake-like flat bread made from chickpea flour. It is sold by street vendors in the south of France. This recipe was not tested by Bob's Red Mill. Gluten Free, High Fiber, Lactose Free, Low Sugar, Soy Free, Vegan.

  • 2-1/2 cups Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Water (cold)
  • 2 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Pepper


Step 1

Mix rosemary, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper in a small container and set aside.

Step 2

Combine chickpea flour, 1/2 cup of olive oil and water in a mixing bowl and whisk until large lumps of flour are incorporated and mixture thickens slightly. Do not over mix.

Step 3

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat, once pan is hot add 1 tsp of olive oil and swirl it around to coat the pan. Pour enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan. Loosely cover with a lid and allow to cook until it's firm enough to turn over. Sprinkle some of the rosemary/pepper/kosher salt mixture on the browned side and continue to cook until done, about 3 or 4 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter. Cut into wedges and serve.


Gluten free and has the same simple ingredients as panisse: chickpea flour, water, salt and olive oil. Makes a great side for salads or left whole and filled with a soft cheese, seasoned and folded.

Servings: 10

I was excited to try this recipe but I had a very difficult time with it. The garbanzo bean flour is interesting but in this recipe it did not hold together at all and I followed the recipe exactly.

An amazingly tasty food, had a little trouble, but very very good!
Also for anyone who did not understand the mixing processes, just mix it all in a bowl. Also, you can eat it with hamburgers instead of a bun, Our family does this because we are gluten free. Very tasty.
