Method:

  1.    In a medium bowl, whisk the garbanzo bean flour together with the salt, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the Parmesan cheese, and generous amount of ground black pepper.

2.    Whisk in 1 3/4 cups of water until the mixture is well blended.  Set batter aside for about a half hour, to the garbanzo flour absorb some of the water.

3.    Preheat the oven to 450 F degrees.  When it is hot, place the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a 12 inch pizza pan.  Heat the pan in the oven until very hot.

4.    Gradually stir remaining water into the batter mixture until it is thin enough to pour.  Remove the hot pizza pan from oven, and immediately pour the batter into the pan.  The batter should make a thin (about 1/4 inch) layer.  Place the pan back in the oven and bake until fainá is golden and crispy (about 8-10 minutes).

5.    Cut the fainá into pieces and serve.
