Savory Pumpkin Socca

When I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Socca on The Vegan Chickpea, I knew had to try it immediately. After all, my first attempt at making chickpea flatbread ( Zucchini Socca ) turned out amazing. Plus, every recipe tastes better with a little pumpkin puree, thus, I assumed Pumpkin Socca would be fantastic. Luckily, I assumed correctly! Not only, is Savory Pumpkin Socca a delicious flatbread option but the recipe is super easy to make. Simply whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth, pour into a pie plate, and bake- that’s it! You can enjoy the socca on it’s own or top with anything you can imagine from vegetables to hummus . I topped mine with Pesto Chickpea Cauliflower Salad and it was a match made in heaven!
