If you haven’t tried socca before, you’re in for a treat. It’s a sort of flatbread or substantial pancake made from chickpeas and it’s naturally vegan and gluten free. It’s also delicious. With little cooking or preparation required it makes a perfect meal for summertime. This socca spread with walnut basil pesto and scattered with toasted walnuts and purple mangetout scored particularly well.
A substantial wholesome pancake enlivened with spices and served with a tangy mango and cucumber salsa and yoghurt. These courgette chickpea pancakes are made with gram flour, so they’re naturally gluten free.
Free from egg, dairy, wheat, gluten and refined sugar, this is a rich and flavoursome coconut chocolate cake made with chickpea flour. It’s pretty healthy as far as cakes go. Think chocolatey but not too sweet with a dense but satisfying texture.
