Friday was a lazy day for me. All I wanted to do was get some rest but I also wanted a nice tasty snack. In my search for gluten free breads I stumbled across homemade chickpea flour. What made this nice was that I could make my own flour. I always try to have chickpeas available in my pantry. They are great for soups, stews, rice, and even cookies.
To make the flour, blend 1 cup in a high speed blender for a couple minutes. It doesn’t take long until you get nice fluffy flour.
You can store this in an air tight seal so that you can always have chickpea flour handy. It is great for thickening soups and gravies.
To make flat bread, add equal parts of chickpea flour and water. Add a tsp of olive oil and some salt. Mix well and allow to sit so the chickpea can absorb the water.
Heat the skillet on high and add olive oil. Fry the chickpea flour paste until golden on each side. It is very tasty on its own or as a wrap.
- 1 cup of dried chickpeas
Add the chickpeas to a high speed blender. Turn to high and blend until a powder forms. Store in an airtight container.
Chickpea flat bread
- 1 part chickpea flour
- 1 part water
- 1 tsp olive oil (preferably 1 tsp per 2-3 parts chickpea flour)
- optional spices or herbs
Mix together the ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit for 1/2 or more. This allows the chickpea flour to get soft. If you don’t have time like me, just skip this step.
Heat a skillet on high and add olive oil. Fry the bread on both sides until golden brown. Enjoy with your meal or as a snack.
