1 cup chickpea flour

1/2 tsp herbes de Provence (or other dried herb mixture)

1 1/4 cups water

2 tbsp olive oil, separated

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

1. In a bowl mix chickpea flour, dried herbs, water, 1 tbsp olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Whist together until completely combined.  You can mix this up anywhere from 24 hours to 30 minutes ahead of time.

3. Once heated, remove the casserole or sheet pan and line with parchment paper.  Then pour in mixture.  Make sure the batter goes out to all corners.

4. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until firm and starting to brown.

5. Remove from oven, pierce with a fork, drizzle with about a tbsp of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cut as desired.
