Socca with onion and herbs from the Blender Girl


My first attempt to make socca was not successful, but I gave myself another chance to try.  And, luckily this time with new recipe from an amazing Tess Masters book the Blender Girl,  it was more than I ever hoped for. Yammi, yammi, yammi, I have to say that I finished it all very fast.  If you are looking for new tastes , are vegetarian/ vegan or allergic to gluten this is something you should definitely  try. You will not regret it.


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil + extra for greasing
  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 Tsp Himalayan salt + 1 Tsp freshly grounded  black pepper
  • 1 big yellow onion,  finely chopped
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped thyme
  • 1/2 cup of roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds (optional)


  1. Pour the water, 2 Tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper and the flour in blender and pulse few times.
  2. Transfer this mixture to a bowl and let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, preferably for 12 hours or overnight.  The flour should absorb the water and oil and the mixture should be tick as heavy cream.
  3. Preheat the oven to 230’C.
  4. In a frying pan over medium heat pour olive oil and saute onion for about 10 min, add the with garlic and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the herbs.
  5. Grease shallow pie plate (23-25cm) with olive oil. spoon the onion and herb mixture in the pan and pour over the flour mixture.  stir gently to disperse the onion and herb throughout the batter.
  6. bake for 10-15 minutes. it is done when it pulls away from the sides of the pan. remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Brush the top of the socca with a little bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Cut into wedges and serve. Socca is best eaten as soon s it is made.
