Gluten-free Chickpea Flatbread Farinata with Leeks & Parmesan

by Lucia

This Gluten-free Chickpea Flatbread Farinata with Leeks & Parmesan is a new version of my most viewed farinata recipe. It’s an italian meal, which has it’s origins in Piedmont and Liguria. It’s incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious. Well, all you need are a few ingredients, such as water, chickpea flour, extra virgin olive oil and salt.

It is served straight from the oven and the inside of farinata is literally melting in your mouth. It’s very creamy inside and it seems too liquid. There is nothing wrong and it’s exactly how it should be. Later, when it gets colder, the inside will get more dense and you can eat it easily by holding in hands.

Although in Italy they make it without any additional vegetables or cheese and they have their strict rules for the oven temperature for baking it, I have found my own way to prepare this Farinata.

It’s really, but really easy, it’s gluten-free, nutrient, grain-free and lactose-free. It’s made with chickpea flour, so it’s protein rich too.

There are so many ways how to prepare farinata, you can read about my Onion Farinata or Tomato Farinata.

This Leek&Parmesan Farinata is:

  • gluten-free
  • vegetarian (vegan if skipping parmesan)
  • diary (skip parmesan) / lactose-free
  • healthy and nutrient
  • protein rich
  • grain-free
  • nut-free
  • perfect for lunch or dinner
  • easy to pack as lunch for the office

Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat

Ingredients

  • 500 ml water
  • 150 g chickpea flour
  • 25 g extra virgin olive oil
  • 1,5 tsp salt (adjust as preferred)
  • 3 medium size leeks
  • a hand of grated parmesan

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine together water, chickpea flour, oil and salt, stir it well by a whisk. The batter will be quite watery. 
  2. Put aside for some time - at least 30 minutes, up to 4 hours.
  3. After that time, preheat oven to 210 degrees (ventilation plus girl top/down option), grease a large baking pan (mine is 32 cm diameter) and put a parchment paper in the tray (parchment paper is optional, I use it to prevent sticking farinata to the pan). 
  4. Clean leeks (take out the first external layer, slice off the root end and the tough green top of the leek, and wash it well. Slice the leek in half lengthwise. 
  5. Pour the farinata batter into the prepared baking tray.
  6. Place the halves of the leek cut side up and put grated parmesan on top.
  7. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes at 205-210 degrees. It's baked when having a brown/golden color on top)

Notes: It is served straight from the oven and the inside of farinata is literally melting in your mouth. It's very creamy inside and it seems too liquid. There is nothing wrong and it's exactly how it should be. Later, when it gets colder, the inside will get more dense and you can eat it easily by holding in hands.

Notes

This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, plant-based. I use a round pan of 32 cm diameter. If you don't have such, please, use some pan which is large enough, as farinata should be high from 0,7 mm to 1 cm.
