Why didn’t I think about it before? – Chili Pepper Farinata
On the other hand, I am forever grateful that my taste evolve and change and that I discover new things so I’m not stuck with the same all my life. I don’t dislike the pleasures of recognition and of habits but because of my character, my life would be a sad one if that was all I got out of it. My choice and a choice that suits me.
CHILI PEPPER FARINATA
250 g/ 8,8 ounce chickpea flour
500 ml/ 2,1 cup water
0,5-1 tsp salt
1-2 tsp chili powder
extra-virgin olive oil
Whisk chickpea flour, salt, chili pepper and water quickly together and leave it to rest for at least 45 minutes.
Take a baking tray (I use a 22×30 cm/ 8.6×11.8 inches), be it in metal or glass, and drizzle olive oil in it, greasing the surface well. Pour the batter into the tray and drizzle more olive oil over, then bake in a pre-heated oven (200°C/390°F) for 15-20 minutes.
Let it cool down and cut it in pieces, traditionally farinata is cut into lozenge shapes.
