Recipe on back of package:


Socca (Yields 3-9 inch Crackers)    Gluten Free Flatbread

1cup (152grams) Garbanzo Flour
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Mix together the flour, water, oil, salt and cumin.  Let the batter rest in the refrigerator covered for at least 2 hours.  Heat the broiler in the oven.  Spray oil onto a 9 1/2” x 12 1/2” x 1” deep baking sheet pan or a cast-iron skillet and heat under the broiler for 2 minutes or until it is piping hot.  Pour enough batter onto the baking sheet or cast iron skillet to cover the bottom.  Bake under the broiler until the socca is firm and begins to blister and burn.  Approximate 4-5 minutes.  Slide the socca out of the pan, slice into wedges.  Continue to cook the rest of the batter the same way.
