Healthy, delicious, gluten-free & vegan. Need I say more? I mean, really? With so many wonderful things all packaged up into one, it might seem almost too good to be true. the recipe that could literally help you simplify your life, be healthier, all the while impressing your friends and family as well.
you just need:
(2.5) cups chick-pea flour* (also called gram or garbanzo flour)
(3.5) cups fresh cold water
(1 tsp) salt & black pepper, or to taste
(1/4) cup extra virgin olive oil
First, prepare to be blown away in a few hours, as this recipe calls for the mixed batter to sit a little while. I’ve made this recipe now several times and have had great success with mixing it up mid-day on a weekend for cooking in time for dinner.
In a large mixing bowl, pour in the flour. Add the water gradually as you whisk the flour to keep any lumps from forming. Once all the water has been added, mix until completely smooth and add salt and pepper as desired (just not too much salt and this recipe doesn’t need much).
Let the mixture stand on the counter for 3 hours or so. When ready to bake, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Gently skim off any froth that forms on the surface of the mixture with a slotted spoon. Prepare a large rimmed cookie sheet by pouring the olive oil onto the bottom (if you can, do not be shy or skimpy here with the olive oil, it is wonderful in this recipe). Once the oven is hot, pour in the batter, making a layer about (1/4) inch deep. Careful, this is going to move a lot when you pick it up! Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven when done and let cool a little before cutting.
