I recently picked up Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook It’s All Easy Cookbook.  It truly is easy and delicious.  Click on Goop for a link to her blog.

Socca pizza is a simple chickpea pancake that literally takes minutes to make.  It’s tasty, gluten-free, and has only 3 ingredients.  I topped it with raw summer veggies and had a fresh, flavorful dinner in 10 minutes.  Gotta’ love that!


  • 1 Cup Chickpea/Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1 T Olive Oil + more for frying
  • 3/4 - 1 Cup Water
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 2 Asparagus Stalks, shaved thinly with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 Carrot, peeled and shaved thinly with a vegetable peeler
  • 1/2 Avocado, sliced
  • 1 ounce Manchego Cheese, shaved thinly
  • 1 T Fresh Lemon Basil, chiffonade


Step 1

Mix chickpea flour, 1 T olive oil and water together.

Step 2

Heat an 8" non-stick pan and add olive oil to cover the bottom of pan. Pour half the batter into hot oil and fry 3 -5 minutes. Once bottom is golden brown, flip and cook an additional minute or so.

Step 3

Remove from pan and place on a plate.

Step 4

Top with carrots, asparagus, avocado, cheese and basil. Drizzle with some flavored olive oil. YUM!

Step 5

Make a second socca with the leftover batter. Wrap in foil and save for later...if you can resist!

Short Cut: Make ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.  Reheat in oven or microwave.

Think Out of the Ice Box: Add a little sriracha on top to give it a kick.
