Zucchini Socca with Caramelized Onions - Gluten-Free & Vegan

I am very honored to have been asked by Leanne of the Healthful Pursuit to guest post while she and her hubby make the move from Calgary to Montreal. Leanne’s blog is one of my absolute favorites and I enjoy that she and I share very similar views on food, eating and well, life in general. Leanne and I frequently email back and forth chatting about food, health and life and I am constantly grateful that blogging has brought us together. It is amazing how well you can feel like you know someone that you have never actually met.

Zucchini Socca with Caramelized Onions - Gluten-Free & Vegan

After sharing my gluten-free and vegan lentil “meat” loaf the last time I guest posted for HP, I had some big shoes (of my own) to fill, since that has become one of my most popular recipes, to date. This time around, I decided to share a simple recipe that would be perfect way to use some of those last of the season zucchini, whether from your own garden, your neighbors or maybe like me, your CSA share. Soccas have quickly become one of my favorite go-to meals around here when I am at a loss as to what to make. They are super simple, very versatile and being that I usually have a huge bag of chickpea flour in the pantry, I always have what I need to make it. Not too long ago I shared a recipe for a Kalamata Olive and Herb Socca with Roasted Vegetables that I served as a simple lunch for myself and my hubby, but I have also made socca-style pizzas and other variation and I have been dreaming playing with a recipe for a sweet socca, maybe with some cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzled with honey. How amazing does that sound?

This Zucchini Socca with Caramelized Onions features shredded zucchini inside which provides a nice bit of color and flavor, but I also added in some fresh basil and some red pepper flakes and topped it all off with caramelized onions, one of my favorites! There is a wonderful crispiness to the outside and a nice creamy and delectable inside. Also, if you aren’t vegan or dairy-free this would be incredible with some crumbled goat cheese on top, as well.

Head on over to Healthful Pursuit to get the full recipe and thanks again to Leanne for having me guest post while she gets settled in her new life. It is always a pleasure.

I made this last night (my first socca!) and it was delicious! Turned out even better than I was expecting. I thought the flavors might be a little bland, but the amount of red pepper flakes was perfect and added just the right amount of spice. Thank you for sharing! I’ll definitely make this again!
