Calda Calda (Garbanzo Bean Pancake)

1 1/2 c Water
1 c Garbanzo bean flour
1/2 ts Salt
4 1/2 tb Olive oil
1 tb Rosemary, chopped
Black pepper


Pour the water into a large mixing bowl & gradually sift in the flour, whisking it well & ensuring that there are no lumps. Let sit for 3 to 4 hours. Preheat the oven to 500F.

Skim any froth off the batter & whisk in the salt. Oil a 12" pizza pan with 1 1/2 tb of oil & a 9" shallow metal baking dish with 1 tb oil. Pour a very thin layer of the batter into each pan (no more than 1/4". Scatter the rosemary leaves & drizzle over the remaining olive oil.

Bake in the upper third of the oven until the top is golden brown & bubbly. Start checking after 20 minutes; it may take longer. Cut into wedges, sprinkle generously with pepper & serve imediately.

VARIATION: Eliminate the rosemary & scatter a handful of sliced onions over the surface of the batter after it has baked for 10 minutes.
