chickpea flour - recipes

I bought a large container of chickpea flour recently and have no idea what to do with it. Any good recipes/suggestions?

              Reminds me of cross between socca, the S France chickpea crepe, and a Korean seafood and green onion pancake.

                Perfect description. That's exactly what it's like. It is delicious - I can easily make a meal out of nothing else but the pancake.

                  Me too, I love them for brunch. I also recently did Marcella Hazan's marinated sardines which I dusted in chick pea flour before sauteeing--excellent.

                    Yum. Which Marcella cookbook is the recipe in?

                      Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking, p. 63...her recipe calls for regular flour, I substituted chick pea based on another recipe I had seen-- the nuttiness of the chick pea flour really worked!

                        Great idea, and I've got that cookbook right here. I'll give it a try soon. Thanks Marge for the tip!
