We finally tried to make socca another way besides always using garbanzo bean flour. We have shown our first attempt of making lentil socca before and really like it. We have received lots of request for making socca using different ‘flours’ so here it is friends another way to make this easy flavorful bread we call socca 😉
Can our beloved SOCCA be made without garbanzo bean flour?
Just the taste and texture comes out a little different. But that is ok we are all about being different 😉
Plus we are really trying hard to get variety into our diet! And this lentil based flatbread is just want we needed to carry our love of socca to the next level.
- 1 cup lentils (we use sprouted lentils for this recipe)
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1 tsp salt
- 2-4 tbsp oil of choice (olive oil, coconut oil, or ghee for those non-vegans would be a good choice too)
** additional ingredients: any seasonings you like; in the pictures of our lentil socca we threw in whole coriander seeds (so good)
Place water, sprouted lentils, and salt into blender and blend till everything is well combined.
**note- you have to use a blender or food processor when using lentils because we have found this provides the best results for the flatbread/pancake texture you are wanting
Once you have your batter ready pour it into a 10 inch pan. (If you have a 8 or 12 inch pan that is fine, your socca will either be thicker or thinner than the one shown here).
**note- we have never baked our lentil socca only done it on the skillet
How do you tell when the lentil socca is done?
With the lentil socca we have found it puffs up more than the typically garbanzo bean based soccas.
We just touch the socca with our finger and see how it feels, if it feels like it is cooked and not real wet feeling than it is done! You can always cook your socca longer if you want to make sure it is really done 😉
Perfect till the last bite! I am craving it again – better go make me a batch.
This version we did on the skillet and it got a real nice crispy outside with a soft, moist inside! Perfect! Tasted just like bread to us.
Go now and try this new way to make socca with lentils!
We are so happy to be seeing our blog friends and hearing from our readers – making socca and loving it!! Awesome! We love hearing the different ways people enjoy their socca. We are going to start up a socca club, stay tune for details.
