Socca

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the first four ingredients (through paprika). Add water and 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Whisk until smooth. Let batter stand 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Add 1 tsp. of the oil to a 10-inch cast-iron or heavy oven-going skillet. Place the skillet in the upper one-third of oven to preheat 5 minutes (bottom of pan should be 5 inches from heat). Holding handle of skillet with hot pads, pour half the batter (about 3/4 cup) into skillet; carefully spread the batter evenly using an offset spatula.
  3. Return skillet to oven and broil about 4 minutes or until golden brown and slightly dark brown in some areas. Loosen from skillet with wide spatula and transfer to paper towels. Repeat to make another socca, preheating skillet with another 1 tsp. oil for 1 minute before adding the remaining batter. Serve at room temperature or place socca on a baking sheet and reheat in a 350 degrees F oven 5 minutes. Cut rounds in half or tear into pieces to serve.
  4. For dipping sauce, in a small bowl stir together the remaining ingredients. Serve with socca.

Homemade Harissa Paste

Directions

  1. Place dried chile peppers in a large bowl. Pour enough boiling water over peppers to cover and let stand 20 minutes.
