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 wanna to try it out.
Its 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,its a Greek appetizer that I tried at one of my favorite restaurantone day,its really good and you can serve it with any kind of bread .ok so let’s start with the flat bread first
150g (2/3 cup) chickpea flour
450ml (1.9 cup) water
100ml (1/2 cup) extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper if you like
a sprinkle of love
In a bowl put your flour and gently add the water stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
When your 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 you have to 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
Now its time for the Tzatziki sauce that will go perfectly with the flat bread but you can also serve it with some oil and balsamic vinegar
400 Gram Greek yogurt
1 large cucumber Dill
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 and grate the cucumber, 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
Hope you like it
Serve the Tzatziki as a spread or as a dip.
