I finally tried socca! After seeing it all over pinterest, I’d been dying to try this magical bread-like recipe! I originally purchased garbanzo bean flour was for mocha muffins but this flour is amazing stuff and should not be limited to muffins (even though they are ridiculously delicious muffins). Socca seemed like the perfect recipe to try!
Socca is like a blank canvas. There are SO many things you can do with it! So I started brainstorming. What did I want this lovely dinner to look like? I decided I needed to add some extra protein, so I thought I’d try a BBQ Tempeh Socca Pizza.
BBQ Socca Tempeh Pizza
- 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup tempeh (crumbled)
- 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Annie’s)
- 1/2 cup bell pepper strips
- 1/4 cup marinara sauce
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
Let’s start with the crust. Mmk? Heat up a skillet, over medium heat, sprayed with some olive oil. While that’s heating up, mix up those ingredients, and
pour it into your heated skillet…
Keep in mind, this is a 14″ skillet… so it’s a little hard to flip (unless you’re an expert flipper, which I am not…) so once it was cooked on the bottom, and set on the top, I just stuck a cookie sheet over the pan, and flipped it over that way.
In a separate skillet, crumble up your tempeh, and cook it in some bbq sauce.
Now add your toppings to the socca! I used TJ’s marinara sauce, bell pepper strips, and my tempeh.
Cook it for about 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Then take it out of the oven, and marvel at the delicious healthy pizza before you. This stuff is filling! I had one slice and I was stuffed! Honestly, I think the bbq sauce was a little overpowering for me, so I’d recommend going easy on the bbq sauce, or leaving out the marinara.
I can’t wait to try out more socca recipes!
Have you tried socca yet? Have you played around with garbanzo bean flour? (Or am I the only one strange enough to enjoy playing with flour? 😉 )
