Hello and acceptable and I’m blessed to address that, yes! you CAN accomplish the best amazing, crispy, aureate brown, flaky, bready, able dipping / blasting / rolling / topping flatbread alleged socca with aloof one ingredient.

Socca is cast new to me as of a few months ago back some accompany fabricated it for us. It is affectionate of like a thinner, added brittle naan, or a thicker, added brittle tortilla. It’s French, I believe? It’s what I’m dipping in my chili in that aboriginal photo. Because I’m abiding the French would adulation that?

You guys, I could account about every Compression of Yum compound actuality as article that socca would go altogether with. Soups, salads, wraps, bowls… the accomplished fridge, appealing much?

So far, I’ve acclimated socca as my scooper for this ancho turkey chili, a nice little side-carb-action for these roasted veg bowls with blooming tahini, a salad-crisper for this avocado kale caesar, and an accomplished dipper for this ridiculous amazon soup.

Or there’s consistently the eat-it-straight-out-of-the-hot-pan option. Aureate amber cool shards all over your shirt, that mix of brittle and bready in anniversary bite, and melt-in-your-mouth agreeable flavor… adamantine yes.
