As gluten-free diets become more mainstream, foodies have found innovative ways to incorporate grain-free foods into their everyday diet. Socca is a natural gluten-free bread from southern France and Italy made from chickpea flour. This simple flatbread is similar in texture to a crepe or injera (a traditional Ethiopian flat bread). The batter is often flavored with fresh herbs (rosemary and chives are popular additions), garlic and spices. They are filled with a variety of sauteed vegetables, wild lettuces and pungent cheese.
