A thick pancake

Well that wasn’t easy, eh, those last weeks of April. Way too cold for the time of year. I had the urge to get grumpy, but what good does that do you? Instead, I decided to tickle myself a bit by making something really tasty and springy: a farinata with lemon hummus and grilled vegetables on top in a fresh, spicy dressing. Guess what? It worked, this is really a cheerful dish.

A farinata is a type of thick pancake made from chickpea flour and water. You will need a large iron frying pan with a diameter of about 30 centimeters. Chickpea flour is available at health food stores and at Mediterranean and tropical stores. (Note the expiration date, as the flour will go rancid quickly.)
