In Chickpea Flour Dos It All, food writer and photographer Lindsay S. Love shows how chickpea flour can shine in sweet and savory dishes alike—especially alongside fresh, seasonal ingredients!

Love’s recipes are vegetarian and gluten-free, and she includes a gorgeous photo of every one. (It’s no surprise she has over 40,000 Instagram followers!)

Meet the New Must-Have-It Pantry Staple: Chickpea Flour

Why make chickpea flour your new go-to? Because everyone—gluten-free or not—will find a reason to love it. This versatile alternative to wheat flour shines in savory and sweet dishes alike. It’s been used for centuries around the world, and is famous in Nice, France, where the flatbread socca is enjoyed with a chilled glass of rosé.

In this gorgeously photographed cookbook, Lindsey S. Love takes inspiration from her favorite seasonal ingredients, global flavors, and much-loved family recipes to create vibrant gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian dishes where chickpea flour is the star. Gluten-free diners especially will be amazed by the variety—nothing’s off the table anymore, and taste is never sacrificed. Plus, many recipes are vegan—taking advantage of chickpea flour as a base for vegan sauces and a soy-free alternative to tofu.

Lindsey’s inventive recipes meld sophisticated and subtle flavors—and beg to be shared with friends and family at any time of the year!
