Farinata (Italian Flatbread)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Farinata is a gluten-free Italian flatbread made with chickpea flour that is very easy to make. I'm sure this recipe will become part of your regular repertoire. I have added some spring onions and garlic for a more gourmet version of the simple farinata."
