Recipe by Chef John
"Farinata is nothing more than a simple garbanzo bean flour batter which is spiked with olive oil and salt and baked in a very hot oven. The surface gets crusty, the edges get crispy, and yet the inside stays moist and sort of creamy. The texture is easy to explain, but the taste, not so much. Very earthy, comforting, and satisfying."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
minced fresh rosemary
olive oil, divided
freshly ground black pepper to taste
This is so good. I used oregano instead of rosemary. Make sure that your iron skillet is very hot when you pour the batter in.
I am on a gluten free diet so was excited to try something new. I didn't hate it but wouldn't make it again.
Loved it! Skipped the rosemary as we were having Indian Butter Chicken over it but will absolutely try it that way next time. I think it would be delicious with some garlic and green onion as well. Just heated up a slice in the toaster oven for breakfast...just as delicious! Chef John nails it once again.
Loved it! I followed the recipe exactly, and the farinata came out amazing! Really simple to make too. The crust was my favorite part. The batter smells like the garbanzo bean, but by the time it's baked it doesn't taste like beans at all. Looking to experiment next time and trying to think what else I'll put on it. Thanks, Chef John!
Thanks for the recipe! Quite tasty for something so simple. I can see myself having this at least once a week, if not more!
