Prep Time:

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoon filtered water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil + more for brushing cast iron pan
  • pepper to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, stir to combine, then pop a lid on a the bowl and allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Set oven to high broil and move oven rack to highest position in oven.
  3. Oil a cast iron pan with 1 teaspoon olive oil and place under the broiler for 2 minutes.
  4. Remove cast iron from oven and pour 1/4 of the batter into the pan.
  5. Return to the oven for 3-4 minutes. [I found our socca was better at the 3 minute mark – after the first try you’ll know what works best for your oven]
  6. Place finished socca on cooling rack, and repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Serve with hummus or stew
