I tell you this recipe

"Farinata" is a typical pancake from Liguria, provolone a kind of Italian cheese, and everybody knows the Italian ham, “prosciutto cotto”.
The classic version of Farinata is made only with the chickpea flour without the addition of other ingredients such as the one proposed here, it is a close relative of Cecina in Tuscany. It is typical of Lunigiana and goes from Genova to Livorno along the north coast of Tuscany.
In this dish the chickpea flour becomes a fragrant "pancake" excellent with meats and vegetables. Children's palates will get crazy!

the nutritional

The farinata is an excellent example of how the flavor meet perfectly with excellent ingredients from a nutritional point of view. Chickpeas are legumes that constitutes an important contribution to our diet with proteins and some essential amino acids that are typically found in meat and fish. So in order to limit the consumption of foods of animal origin, and to vary the flavors of our tables, the farinata is a great alternative, considering the limited caloric intake. The Farinata eaten with seasonal vegetables is a great dish! The classical one prepared without the addition of ham is also good for people with celiac disease for the absence of gluten.
