*You can make your own chickpea flour by using 2 c dried chickpeas and mixing in a blender on high until it becomes a fine powder. The chickpea flour can be found at health food stores. The cecina can be served with a pesto or tomato spread but avoid hummus. It can also be cut up into croutons and used as a substitute for pasta or beans in soup as it will not dissolve when added to liquid.
