Little by Little

January 24, 2015

It all started for me with a meatless Monday… easy enough. As time went on it seemed that the less meat I ate , the less I craved and I had developed an arsenal of meatless recipes that kept me satisfied. Now I’ve added wheatless Wednesday to my schedule…maybe not so easy? Bread and bread products are everywhere as well as numerous pasta variations. Hmmm. Enter chickpea flour and this simple, simple, SIMPLE recipe for Socca, a flatbread or pancake favored in the south of France and Italy, as well as variations in India. After the first test I was hooked. On their own with a sprinkle of coarse salt and pepper, using them as flour tortilla replacements in quesadillas or topping them with a bit of butter and jam with your morning coffee might just hook you as well.

Did I mention that chickpea flour is packed with protein and dietary fiber? With that bonus more experimenting was in order. Up next?….oh yes I did.

    I’ve been doing the VB6 diet (Mark Bittman’s Vegan Before 6pm) for a couple of weeks now. It works well for me because I can do my veggie thing during the day, and then loosen up a bit for dinner with my husband. I’ve experimented a bit with coconut and almond flour, but not chickpea flour. Can’t wait to try this…

    BTW, Greg, I made your veggie chili a while back, and it was scrumptious!
