Socca Style Wraps
Do you keep gram flour as a kitchen staple or do you just buy it when needed? I never used to have it. I didn’t know where to buy it. In fact, I probably never realised such a thing existed! We use it quite a lot, gram flour, or garbanzo flour, call it chickpea flour if you wish, they’re all the same. 🙂 I think we only use it for savoury recipes, I can’t recall using it in anything sweet. We add it to onions with some spices to make quick vegetable or onion bhajis, or vegetable fritters, we add it to savoury muffins and now, well now we use it to make delicious wraps! Socca is an Italian flatbread made with gram flour with the addition of olive oil and often various spices too. We’ve removed the olive oil and made a thinner bread, almost pancake like which works great as a sandwich style wrap. You can of course add in more herbs and spices as you wish, but these being plain work well with all flavours… yumyum!
Sure you can go and pick up a packet of regular wraps at the supermarket, but there’s nothing like homemade! 😀 These are simple to make, full of protein, flexible to fold around your fillings and taste delicious! 😀 Plus, you can make more than you need and store in the fridge for up to five days and reheat in the toaster, a pan or microwave (or even eat cold)! What’s not to like! Okay, so they also contain iron, magnesium, Vitamin B6, potassium, Vitamin C and calcium! Convinced now! 😛 You can whizz these up and have them on your plate in less than five minutes! You just need to decide what to fill them with! 😀 What will you have in yours?
I spread these ones for lunch with houmous, added some spicy roasted chickpeas, baby spinach, red peppers, tomatoes, black olives, and sweetcorn.
And for dinner, we served these wraps with marinated tofu and onions, red pepper, lettuce, coleslaw and fresh coriander.
