Author Notes: Add herbs or spices if you like: a couple of teaspoons of fresh rosemary or thyme, or half a teaspoon of smoked paprika or ground cumin. —Nicholas Day
Serves: 4 as a side
cup chickpea flour
tablespoons olive oil
Optional herbs or spices (see note)
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients (including the optional herbs or spices) until smooth. Let the batter rest covered for at least an hour, or until you need it. (You could mix it in the morning and make it in the evening.)
- Preheat a waffle iron on high, brushing it with oil. Spoon out enough batter for it to spread across the waffle iron, then close it and cook until the socca becomes golden and crisp. Eat as soon as possible.
