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.
