Gluten-Free and Vegan Chickpea Farinata
Ever made a farinata?
It’s a simple blend of chickpea flour, water, olive oil, a touch of sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and a bit of fresh rosemary.
A protein-packed dish that is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
Perfect atop salads.
Or mixed into stir-fries.
Or, if you’re like me, you can enjoy this dish alone with a spoon, a dollop of ripe avocado and a sprinkling of chopped cherry tomatoes.
It’s fun and tasty.
Something new to add to your meals.
Think of it this way...
It’s a cute, new protein that can be enjoyed in so many ways.
