Chickpea Skillet bread
GF, Vegan, Dairy free, Sugar free, quick.

So this really is a creative recipe, I usually don't measure anything and just go by how it looks and add what ever is at hand, to the core ingredients

For example... Sometimes I add 
corn, paprika and rosemary or just garlic, 
or cumin and fresh herbs. 
or just salt and pepper and garlic. 
but my favorite is the one below

Core ingredients
  • 1 cup chickpea (chana) flour
  • about 2 cups of water 
  • optional baking powder about 1 teaspoon ( this makes it alittle lighter)
  • salt and pepper


For the one pictured I added
  • fresh thyme about a 8 sprigs, just the leaves
  • 1 clove garlic minced

to sprinkle over once cooking
  • Olives
  • sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds
  • pine nuts

Method
  1. In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder salt and pepper, garlic, fresh thyme leaves, slowing adding the water until it looks like a thickened cream consistency.
  2. Heat a pan on the stove top, with a little olive oil, to a medium heat.
  3. Pour in the bread mix.
  4. Sprinkle the olives, seeds and nuts on top.
  5. Cook until the underside is golden. then flip over and cook until cooked through.
  6. serve hot with soup or yummy avocado. Or tomatoes and fresh herbs. Also makes a great pizza base, topped  with caramelized onions and fresh herbs.

I always try and save a little for lunch. Not always successfully :)
