We picked up some fresh swordfish, that I grilled on my new stainless steel grill grid (a nice big one this time!). I minced up basil, lemon balm and mint, with some olive oil and lemon juice to brush over it. I also roasted some beets from the garden, with a little leftover quinoa and tomato salad with delicious Feta cheese from Bulgaria, it was a delicious feast.

I am gluten free, and today we were looking at some sites about traveling in France and Italy, and I came across a recipe for Socco, aka Farinata, a street food in southern France and Italy. It is made by stirring chickpea flour into a mixture of water and olive oil to form a loose batter, and baking it in the open oven. A tin-plated copper baking-pan is used, though I ended up using a stainless pan in the oven at 500! It sits for 2 hours before cooking. Traditionally it is cut into irregularly shaped triangular slices, and enjoyed (with no toppings) on small plates with sea salt and black pepper. I added grated zucchini, cilantro and red pepper flakes, and baked it in the oven. It is good, I did make it too thick so cooking was a challenge, but hey it was my first time. Definitely a keeper, and I think I'll try it with some other vegetables next time and perhaps do it in one of my tart pans. As well as do one without all my own additions. I cannot be trusted to follow a recipe. Plays well with others, doesn't always follow directions too well.
I always love to find new GF recipes, that are good! I am working on perfecting a GF pizza crust that is close to the one made by Against the Grain, on of my fav GF pizzas. Way more cost effective to make your own! It is dairy full, but using almond milk and Manchego you can avoid the dairy effect if need be.
