Pregnancy Nutrition: Chickpea Flatbread Recipe

Chickpea Flatbread (‘Socca’)

A nourishing, gluten-free, vegetarian dish that is high in protein, fiber, and antioxidants, and regulates blood sugar levels.

Serves 2


1 cup chickpea/garbanzo bean flour

1 cup water

2 tbsp chopped fresh or dried herbs (like rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage)

2 tbsp salt

3 tbsp olive oil

3 cups sliced steamed vegetables for topping (like zucchini, potato, or spinach)

¼ cup nuts for topping (pine nuts or chopped walnuts)

¼ cup cheese for topping (like feta or goats cheese)

Preheat oven to 220C/450F. Mix together the chickpea flour, water, herbs, salt, and olive oil in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside while you prepare the toppings. Slice and steam the vegetables, chop the nuts, and crumble the cheese.

Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a large baking tray and heat in the oven for 1-2 minutes until hot. Take the tray out of the oven and pour in the flour mixture. Scatter the toppings and bake for 10-20 minutes until golden on top.
