what do you do with chickpea flour

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was motivated after reading so many recipes here- now cant remember what they were!!!  Any ideas?

My very favorite snack is Socca a street food from the south of France.

I also use it in home made falafel, to bind it.

It's used in the Fronch Toast recipe from VWAV - I've simplified that one to this:

 

1 cup vanilla soy milk

2 TBS cornstarch

1/4 cup garbanzo flour

Mix and dip bread slices into the batter, cook as you would any french toast.

 

I also use it in Zucchini pancakes- need to tweak that recipe before I'll post it, though, and as one of the flours I use for gluten-free cakes.

 

Oh, and if you aren't avoiding fatty foods, it's the main ingredient in pakora batter. Mmm... pakora. Too bad I get sick if I eat fried foods.

 

As an aside, you probably don't want to taste batters with garbanzo flour in them raw - it tastes disgusting. The overwhelming beany flavor goes away once it is cooked.
