Chickpea Flour Farinata with Herbs

TÜRKÇE İÇİN TIKLAYIN "Nohut Unlu Otlu Farinata"
PER ITALIANO "Farinata di Ceci alle Erbe Aromatiche"

PRE-NOTE: Hi everyone.. It's been a long break. I had a busy summer and didn't have the time to take care of blog.

I wrote the following post quite a while ago. It is a bit outdated but I wanted to share it anyway.

See you very soon with new recipes...

I got this recipe from Voi...Noi...Bimby which is official Thermomix magazine here in Italy. I believe this could be a delicious and healthier alternative to white flour bread. I prepared it with some modifications.

Today I'd also like to share some photos from the 3rd day of our Cappadocia trip. Since it was the last day and we had a long trip ahead of us back to Istanbul we tried to visit as many places as fast as possible. 

We started our tour from Mustafapaşa village and Monastery Open Air Museum.

One of the things I was curious about the most was the underground cities of Cappadocia. We left them to the last day simply because they would be on our route on the way back home. 

We first visited Kaymakli and then Derinkuyu underground cities. It was an amazing experience. Luckily we didn't have any true claustrophobics amongst us. Otherwise it wouldn't be quite possible to go 8 floors underground by passing through such narrow and low tunnels where our bodies hardy fit. (Nevertheless, we accept that we all felt a bit claustrophobic at some point)

The last stop of our Cappadocia trip was Ihlara Valley. Since we had a limited time we couldn't wander around as much as we wished. Regardless, we enjoy that precious 1 hour of time we spent there.
After having a late lunch in one of the restaurants located in front of the third entrance of the valley down in Belisirma, we hit the road to go back to Istanbul.

There was only one thing left in Cappadocia which we couldn't experience: flying in an hot air ballon. We didn't have the chance to join in one of those world famous balloon tours and fly over the magical landscape of the area. We couldn't see even a single one flying in the air let alone joining one! The weather conditions were not suitable for balloons to fly so none did. This may be a good excuse to go back to Cappadocia some day, don't you think?

Let's come to the recipe now...

5 g parsley (leaves only)
2 sprigs of thyme (leaves only)
2 sage leaves
10g onion
150g chickpea flour
500g water
40g extra virgin olive oil


  • Place herbs in TM Bowl. Chop for 7 seconds on Speed 6-7.

  • Add onion and chop for 2 seconds on Speed 6-7.

  • Add chickpea flour, water, salt and pepper. Blend for 20 seconds on Speed 4-5.

  • Cover a tin (of 30 cm diameter) with baking paper. Brush it with oil.
  • Pour flour mixture into the tin. Dress with the remaining olive oil.

  • Bake for around 35 minutes in preheated oven at 220°C.

  • Slice and serve.


If you have leftovers you can simply warm them in a frying pan and then serve. We did so the day after and enjoyed them very much.
