I love chickpea, growing up in Italy one of my favorite dish was pasta e ceci/ pasta and chickpea. I found this recipe on one of my favorite website http://theitaliantaste.com/ and I really liked it so I wanted to try it out.
It’s very healthy; I think everybody knows how chickpea are good for you so you should give it a try also its gluten free so less calorie to think about it. With this flat bread I wanted to try the Tzatziki sauce, it’s a Greek appetizer that I tried at one of my favorite restaurant one day, it’s really good and you can serve it with any kind of bread.
- 150 gr (2/3 cup) chickpea flour
- 450 ml water
- 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and Pepper
- A sprinkle of love
In a bowl put your flour and gently add the water stirring constantly to avoid lumps. When the mixture is nice and smooth you need to cover it with a lid and let stay for 4/5 hours or even better over night, mixing it few times.
After that take the lid off and with slotted spoon remove the foam that has formed on the top of your mixture.Put half of the oil in the mixture it and stir for a minute, pour the other oil on your round baking sheet (9 inch wide) spread it out and now pour the chickpea mixture on.
Turn the oven at 350 and bake your flat bread for 30/40 minutes until is nice and gold…enjoy it.
- 400 gr Greek yogurt
- 1 large cucumber
- 1 Tablespoon Dill chopped finely
- 2 tablespoon vinegar
- 4 Tablespoon Extra virgin olive
- 2 Clove garlic chopped finely
- Salt to Taste
- a sprinkle of love
Chop the ends of the cucumber, wash it and grate it, place a strainer on a bowl so that the cucumber water can drain away.
Squeeze out excess water if any from the cucumber.
In a bowl mix the Greek yogurt, along with the squeezed cucumber and chopped dill and garlic.
Towards the end add slowly, little by little, both the oil and the vinegar, and at last salt to taste. This sauce it can be serve with any kind of bread or with meat and fish and it can be used for spread or dip. Buon Appetito
Personal suggestion: the cucumber water can be used like a Tonic for your face, try it on your skin it will feel nice and fresh.
