I finally bought a bag of chickpea flour today and I’m so glad I did.
Chickpea flour is so versatile, cheap, and nutritious!
aaaand it only requires water. Say wha?
I can’t believe how easy this was.
Just mix and pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes and voila, an interesting, tasty “flatbread.”
I initially intended to make mini veggie pizzas, but I was hesitant to potentially waste my veggies on something that could have failed, so I added them after baking.
After devouring a mini flatbread/pizza, I whipped up a garlic tahini soybean paste dressing.
Chickpea flatbread / pizza crust
⅔ c chickpea flour
⅓ c + 1 tbs water
Spices – anything you want; I used garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, cumin, and sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Mix everything in a bowl
3. Prepare baking sheet
4. Add mixture to baking sheet and try to spread evenly with a spoon or your hands
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes
6. Top with herbs or veggies and enjoy!
***also, I experimented with the chickpea flour + water mixture a couple different ways & they all worked!
All I did was mix 1/3 c chickpea flour, 1/3 c water, and ⅛ tsp baking powder and it became a very thin batter, like the consistency of pancakes, and I poured it into the skillet to find that pancakes, crepes, dosas, etc are all totally doable:)
I also mixed ⅓ c chickpea flour, ⅓ c water and poured that into the skillet. They came out as slightly thicker but not a very noticeable difference.
