  1. Combine chickpea flour, water, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir everything together until smooth. Set aside and let rest at room temperature for 2 hours.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Cut socca into pieces and serve hot, sprinkled with pepper. Or garnish with caramelized onions or other toppings of your fancy.
