Socca It To Me

I recently discovered socca.  It is basically a pancake made with chickpea flour. I was never one for pancakes.  They were too sweet and too dense. Mom my always made banana pancakes and at the time I wasn't allergic to them but I just knew didn't really like it. I am still not a fan of pancakes but I will eat them every now and them. Then I made a socca pancake and ate it and now I can't stop thinking about it. 

Socca Pancake

1/4 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup water or nut milk
1 egg or 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil plus a extra for the pan

The recipe is simple and versatile as fuck!  Mix equal parts chickpea flour and water or if you like, a nut milk of choice. Let it rest for 15-30 minutes so the flour can absorb the liquid. At this point make your toppings.  I made dino kale and carrot top hash with garlic, chili flake, and bacon.  Topped with nuts, greek yogurt and Everything But the Bagel Mix from Trader Joe's.  For this version I added an egg but I have read versions that use olive oil. Pick your poison. I also added ground turmeric, paprika, and ground coriander to the mix.  But you can add whatever you want. In pan over a medium high heat, preferably larger than 10 inches, and preferably nonstick, pour in some olive oil.  When hot, pour in batter. Now you can do all of it at once or in batches.  Cook until a golden brown, flip.  Then on to the plate. Top with goodies. Consume.

Creative use of them peppers.  

I ask myself that all the time. 

 Because. See get it? 2/9 was National Pizza Day and that's not pizza. 

Like a Nutella bar.

Yes, tell me more.

My hangover cure!

Big City. Little Person

I never really take myself seriously.  I am 32 but I don't feel or act my age.  I don't think I will ever want to "act my age." Contrary to what Prince says I will probably always act my shoe size.  But I will eat and have always eaten beyond my years.

This Week in SnackChat

We find ourselves back at the end of the week. Ready for the weekend.  But first lets creep on this weeks edition of This Week in SnackChat. 

That new new is fire!  

So yummy!

Not a tourist trap. 

When the food stares back.

Dreams are made of Hainan Chicken Rice. 

One rule to remember, if it grows together, it goes together. 

We call them  throat scrapers.

Gotta do what you gotta do.  

And the plate won't break.

Needs the cup.

Kale is no longer the green leafy thing that decorates your plate. It has an official menu space.


Whole fried fish. Whole fish plate.
