Happy Friday luvs!

Nothing like a little freezing rain…how is the weather in your neck of the woods?

Last week we enjoyed something sweet, something special, and could not wait to make it again.

Carrot Cake Socca (gluten-free, vegan, soy-free)

  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 cup carrot juice (and this is what we plan to make with the carrot pulp)
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Stir all together in a bowl. Place in hot oiled pan to bake or cook on skillet.

Now what to fill it with?

We wanted something sweet, so we covered our carrot cake socca in a thick layer of  coconut banana butter! Thanks to Katie for this wonderful creation, this was the perfect filling for our carrot cake socca!!

DSC_0040Love the color the carrot juice provided the socca, as well as giving it some natural sweetness! Love it!

I see Lori and I having this again many times in the future, along with some chocolate goodies :)

Remember our Valentines Day Sale is going on right now! Get your chocolate orders in now in time for Valentines Day!

Till next time,

Michelle

Oh wow, you girls never cease to amaze me! I think of all the blogs out there, your recipes are the ones I most-often bookmark! But then I get lazy :( . Some I’ve bookmarked? Tiramisu pancakes, macaroons, and your socca!!! I NEED to make that socca! What is wrong with me that I haven’t tried it yet?

And now it comes in a carrot cake version? Truly, please come over here and get me off my lazy butt. I want to eat your entire post! :)

Jennifer and Jaclyn @ sketch-free vegan February 4, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Wow! I’m astonished by what you girls can do with socca! You should make a socca e-book or something :)

Reply

Pure2 February 4, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Jennifer and Jaclyn – we have actually have thought about socca cookbook, already gathered ideas for it.

I’m gonna start making Socca for the family I’m a private chef for! I’m not telling the kids whats in though cause they wont touch it, but I’ll just say its “carrot cake”!

I am all over this carrot- cake socca! I’ve been on the socca kick recently since I got my chickpea flour and so new ideas are welcomed. In fact, I got really creative a few days ago and made a pizza out of the chickpea flour– so yummy! I bet Ashley’s coconut cream frosting would be good in the middle, as well :)

Stunning…and how wonderful it reminds me of a raw vegan “grilled cheese” sandwich. YUM!

Reply

Pure2 February 6, 2011 at 7:39 am

Ms Adventurees – thank you! yes it does look like raw vegan grilled cheese, which we have made before :) YUM!

Jennifer Leonard (big sis) February 6, 2011 at 10:08 am

This looks amazing!

Reeni February 6, 2011 at 10:25 am

I made socca yesterday – love it! This is a unique twist with the carrot juice. And banana BUTTER? Sounds divine!

Reply

Pure2 February 6, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Yay Reeni – so glad you enjoyed your socca!!!

Barbara February 7, 2011 at 6:29 am

Sounds intriguing! I’m going to try this out. Wonder if I could make the flour on my own in my Blendtec. Ya think? Would it be more than just grinding the chick peas into flour, or would you need to soak first, dehydrate and then make the flour? Hmmmmm….

Where the heck have I been?? I am new to socca. Actually, I didn’t know what it was until I read “socca” on your blog (I have a kid who played soccer for 8 years so naturally I assumed . . ). This stuff looks like my newest obsession! It fit all food criteria for me: VEGAN, EASY, FEW INGREDIENTS, SWEET.

You two are darling! Can’t wait for the photo blog. Count me in on that too!

Pure2 August 10, 2011 at 4:57 am

thank you Darris! We love our socca!!!

Morri September 30, 2011 at 7:45 pm

I don’t know why I never tried socca before, but you both have definitely converted me to the dark side (only, instead of cookies there’s socca :P ). I made socca today and thought I’d share it with you and give you credit where it’s due.

Also, have you thought of using cucumber juice or beet juice. I think the former would taste “refreshing” and the latter could be a “red velvet socca sandwich” with your coconut banana butter.

Hugs!
Morri
