Summer Socca

Summer Socca

This street food from Italy's Ligurian Sea coast tastes like a dream. It's reminiscent of a savory pancake or crispy cracker. Even if you don't add any spices or veggies, "plain" socca doesn't taste plain at all. It's rich (though it's cheap), buttery (I can't believe it's not) and complex (but it's so easy).
