What is Socca ? Can it be Frozen

socca farinata

Socca is a type of thin, unleavened pancake or flatbread made from chickpea flour, olive oil, water, and salt. It is a traditional dish from the region of Provence in southeastern France, particularly in the city of Nice and along the French Riviera. Socca has a crispy exterior and a soft, slightly custardy interior.

To make socca, chickpea flour is mixed with water, olive oil, and salt to form a smooth batter. The batter is then poured onto a hot, greased skillet or baking dish and cooked in a hot oven or on a stovetop until golden brown and crispy around the edges. Socca can be cooked as one large pancake or cut into smaller pieces for serving.

Socca is typically served as a street food or appetizer, often enjoyed hot and fresh from the oven with a sprinkle of coarse salt and black pepper. It can also be topped with additional ingredients such as fresh herbs, caramelized onions, olives, or cheese. Socca is naturally gluten-free and vegan, making it suitable for a wide range of dietary preferences.

In addition to its popularity in France, socca has gained recognition in other parts of the world as a flavorful and nutritious alternative to traditional bread or flatbreads. It is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed on its own or as part of a larger meal, and it pairs well with a variety of accompaniments, such as salads, dips, or roasted vegetables.
