CHICKPEA FARINATA WITH TOMATOES, ONION, OLIVES AND HERBS – GLUTEN-FREE

Chickpea Farinata With Tomatoes, Onion, Olives and Herbs

Farinata is a Ligurian dish made with chickpea flour, water, salt and olive oil, just like the socca you find in Nice. I am very fond of farinata, it is one of those dishes that make me eat. And eat. And eat. And if you ever get tired of the original, you can always make this version where I added onion, tomatoes, olives and herbs-all ingredients that have a central position in Italian cooking. Another very positive aspect of this dish is that it is gluten-free which makes it so useful when you have gf guests, no need to make special food and make them feel singled out, not to speak about the beauty to be able to share the same food with everyone! And it is Gluten-free Friday after all!
