Pumpkin Socca Time!

by Nicole on February 3, 2011

There was a lot of buzz over the Oprah episode the past two days. A bunch of bloggers (including myself) were pretty fired up about it. I really hope at the very least it does get people thinking about where their food comes from.


Yesterday I starter my day with piloxing and ended it with a facial. You can imagine I’m very relaxed right now. I treat myself to a facial a couple of times a year. When I got home I was starving. I decided it was more beneficial to me and Danny for me to eat, rather than to be extremely cranky and wait until he got home to eat.

I started ravaging through my fridge and I forgot, I made socca!

I have been seeing socca (like everything else I try) around the blog world. I first saw it from the Pure2Raw twins and then from Gina. It’s a mixture of chickpea flour and water and comes out kind of bready, kind of cakey. You can make it stove top or in the oven.

For my first time I decided to make pumpkin socca.

I based it on Pure2Raw’s pumpkin socca recipe, but I changed a couple of things.


In the pan

Out of the oven

The pyrex pan I used was a little too small, so I just cooked it for about 40 minutes. My socca came out pie-like, which I wasn’t complaining about. It is delicious! It has a crunchy edge but soft inside. I can’t wait to try different combinations, including stove top socca. I have a feeling that every time I try it, it will come out a little different.

What to do with leftovers? (Besides eat it plain…) I have been eating it as a side to go along with my lunch.

Check out the Pure2Raw twin’s blog for more variations on socca!

I’m off to work and the gym! Have a great day!

Have you ever had socca? What variation?

I must be out of it — I’ve never seen socca before! Looks awesome — and I’m all for anything that is pie-like but healthy!

I LOVE socca! Chickpea flour is my all time favorite! I use it in my waffles and pizza dough! YUM! If you use a cast iron skillet, it comes out crispier. Have a great day Nicole!

Ive never tried this but I have been seeing it everywhere! I def need to get on this bandwagon!

I’d never heard of Socca before now. It sounds like something I would love… I’ll have to get some chickpea flour!

I’ve never made socca before, but I’d add some fresh herbs to make it a nice complement to a savory meal :)

You did Piloxing! :D I teach it here in Iowa. But that socca looks simple and delicious!

I wish I could take a live class here, but there isn’t any in NY!

I didn’t see Oprah but I wish I had! I did see commercials while at the gym and I know her staff was going vegan for a week or something along those lines.

I have never heard of piloxing before :-)
I also have never had socca….and this is why I read so many great blogs: great ideas! :-)

Piloxing is fun, you can look up clips of it on youtube. It’s different and a good workout!

I keep hearing about socca too. I have to say – yours is the first one that makes me really want to try it.

looks good, nice wordpress theme to.

I just made these using a minicupcake pan. That allowed me to reduce the cooking time to 20 minutes. Always a bonus in the South. I think next time I’ll try adding some spices. These will be tasty and easy to eat for breakfast on the drive to work. Thanks.

I never heard of socca before – but I am definitely intrigued – bookmarking this one to try.
