A beloved Tuscan street food that’s popular throughout Europe and goes by a few different names such as Torta di Ceci, Farinata or Socca in France. Traditionally made with rosemary, it’s oh so simple, delicious, and versatile. Serve with a hearty tomato marinara.
Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver uses to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely,
smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size.
Rosemary: A powerful antibacterial that specializes in fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as those that take hold in hospitals. Rosemary contains both caffeic acid and rosma-rinic acid which also act as a powerful anti-inflammatory making it ideal for those who suffer with auto-immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. It also contains properties and volatile oils that work similarly to anti-histamines and make it very useful to treat conditions such as asthma and chronic migraines.
Torta De Ceci
2 1/2 cups chickpea flour
3 1/3 cups water
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
1 tsp olive oil (optional)
2 tbsp chopped rosemary (optional)
Tomato marinara, to serve
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour and water until lump free. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and soak at room temperature for 8 hours to overnight.
Preheat oven to 425F. Cover a large cookie tray with parchment paper.
Add the sea salt and olive oil to the batter (if using), then pour the batter onto the par-chment-covered baking tray. Sprinkle with rosemary (if using).
Carefully lift the tray into the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes, until browned on top. Remove from the oven and cool for 5-10 minutes before removing the parchment pa-per and cutting into pieces.
Serve with tomato marinara.
