A Gluten-free Bread That's Actually Delicious: Bacon + Onion Socca

Last year we started experimenting with grain-free recipes. The one thing that gets a little tricky when using no grains is bread. It's NEVER the same. We started to hear about socca during our grain-free research. At first it sounded a little strange as it is made from chickpea flour. But you know what? It's delicious!

I found a few recipes online and my favorite one was this one. This bread is also a great alternative for folks who eat gluten-free. It's full of flavor and definitely not your average GF sandwich bread. Although, a sandwich with socca is something you should try. I've done- it's right.
Bacon + Onion Socca Bread Recipe

- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
- 2 slices of bacon, diced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 2 tsp. rosemary


1. Mix the chickpea flour, water, olive oil, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Let the batter sit for at least 15 minutes.
2. Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
3. Cook the bacon in a cast iron skillet on the stove.
4. Add the diced onion to the pan and cook until translucent.
5. Add the rosemary to the pan and cook for 1 minute.
6. Drain the bacon, onion, and rosemary mixture and mix into the batter. Make sure you do not pour the bacon fat into the batter. Keep 2 Tbs. of the bacon fat in the pan and dispose of the rest.
7. Add the batter to the pan and then put the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
8. Once the bread has cooked, turn the broiler on and cook until it starts browning in places on top.
9. Serve warm as a snack or side dish!

Originally I thought this bread would have a bean taste. I kept imagining hummus turned into a bread and that idea sounded like something I wouldn't like. But turns out, Socca bread is just plain delicious. It's like a dense and thick savory pancake. Do yourself a favor and make this dish. It'll spice up your regular weeknight meals, no doubt!
