A brilliant idea - a "breather" week to catch up on a FFWD recipe that we might have missed....
Per Nana~ "Socca from Vieux Nice"
This week's FFWD is a make -up week for everyone so I decided to do the socca from Vieux Nice. I had a little trouble finding the chickpea flour so I into checked Amazon.com I was pleased to see that they did carry the item and the price was right.
Unfortunately, I did not notice the amount of weight for the package. When the UPS driver dropped off the 5 pounds of flour, I had no idea when I would possibly use it up, if ever.
The recipe is delicious, but I wish there was a better way of cooking it instead of a 500 degree oven. I had so much smoke in the kitchen I was surprised the smoke alarm didn't go off. I love chickpeas in any form- as a side veggie, hummus, etc. and this recipe was really very tasty. Even after supplying Tricia with a bag, I still have 2 -3/4 packages to go. Any suggestions ? I am definitely going to research some recipes to use up my supply.
Per Tricia~ "Clafoutis"
Personally, I could use a make-up MONTH right about now- but I am happy with the freebie Friday regardless. I chose to do the clafoutis that I missed earlier this month and knocked out two different varieties- a red raspberry one made from frozen Trader Joe's organic raspberries.
Since I had dried apricots on hand also I tried a version using those, but chopped up a bit.
The recipe could not have been much simpler, the ingredients are staples and my guys loved them. All thumbs up and yes, all agreed that the powdered sugar at serving time was the way to go. So glad we had a week to circle back or we might have missed this treat........
