Chickpea Bread and Sun dried Tomato/Sunflower seed Pesto

Have you heard of Socca?
If not, it’s chickpea bread/pancake, and it’s mmm mmm good.
I should also add that it’s gluten-free.
Socca can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes.
You will need the following:
-chickpea flour
-an egg
-olive oil
-garlic
-dried herbs
-water
Take all these ingredients and then mix them in a food processor or Vitamix blender. Once the mixture is combined, pour into a square or round greased baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. You can find the full recipe on Joyous Health blog.
