It’s tough when you suddenly have to give up all grains, especially giving up bread is not easy!

Fortunately, there are still a few alternative ingredients like buckwheat or chickpeas.

Since I’ve been following the Candida diet, I’ve become particularly fond of Farinata.

Farinata is a very flavorful, Italian flatbread made from chickpeas, baked at a high temperature. The ingredient list is short and a silicone baking mat is recommended.


  • 230g chickpea flour
  • 600ml lukewarm water
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • chopped rosemary
  • turmeric, cumin, chili, pepper, …


Fertig gebackene Farinata

First, combine the flour with salt and rosemary in a large bowl. Then, while stirring with a whisk, gradually add the water. Ideally, let the mixture rest for at least 3 hours, better overnight, in a cool place.

Preheat the oven to 230-250°C on convection setting.

Meanwhile, add the spices and olive oil to the dough and stir vigorously again. Place the silicone baking mat on a baking sheet and pour the dough onto it.

Finally, bake for 30 minutes, best served fresh.

Bon appétit!
