Sometimes getting dinner on the table is rough. I know every night should be something delicious and elaborate, but that’s not always how life works, especially right now.
I’m not gonna lie — sometimes a good cheese plate is my dinner. It usually requires no cooking, and I almost always have various components in my fridge — various cheeses, olives, jam, dried fruit — the list is endless.
I usually have crackers, but sometimes I need something more. Like this easy chickpea flat bread, or Socca as it’s called in France. You need literally three ingredients, and one of those is water. It’s also gluten free, and requires no skill. It’s the best accompaniment to a cheese plate when you want something a little sophisticated but not difficult. If you’re looking for an easy and delicious gluten free bread to go with soup or a salad, this is a good choice.
You can season it however you want — coarse sea salt and herbs is my go to, but you can season it with whatever you want. Eat it warm right out of the oven with your favorite cheese and dinner’s on the table. A glass of wine doesn’t hurt either. You’re welcome.
