    Coca Mallorquina is a typical Mediterranean dish from the Balearic Islands. This Spanish Archipel is formed by some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean, like Mallorca, Menorca or Ibiza. The typical Coca Mallorquina is very similar to the focaccia or the Italian pizza. 

     

    HOW TO DO IT?

    The Coca Mallorquina can be made of several ingredients. In this occasion, we are going to explain the recipe of the vegetable coca; ideal for serving in picnics, family meetings, parties and many other multitudinous events.  

    First of all, proceed to heat the oven while you prepare the recipe. Then, we will begin by making the dough; it's the main base of the Coca Mallorquina.  

    Take a bowl and fill it with the wheat flour, the extra virgin olive oil, the water and the packet of yeast. Proceed to mix all the ingredients until the dough paste is smooth enough.

     

    "You can also serve this dish with many Mediterranean ingredients. The limit is your imagination."

     

    Once you have the dough ready, proceed to make little rounds like if you were making small pizzas. Those small pizzas are what is called "Coca". They shouldn't be thicker than 1 cm. When all the small Cocas are made, leave them rest for a bit, while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

    Proceed to peel the red roast peppers and make small slices of 5-10 cm long. Continue peeling the gloves of garlic, and cutting them into really small pieces. These small pieces of garlic must not be bigger than a square centimeter. 

    Mix the peppers and the garlic in a bowl, and proceed to add salt and saffron to it. You can also add parsley and other condiments if you like, it's up to you.

    Once you have the main condiments chosen and mixed, proceed to fill the small Cocas with them until all of them are completely full. 

    The easiest step of this recipe is up to come: just proceed to put the cocas with the peppers and garlic in the oven and heat them up until they start to get golden (this should be around 45-50 min).

    This typical Mediterranean dish can be also made with several Mediterranean ingredients as Jamón Ibérico, Manchego Cheese, White Tuna... It only depends on which one you like the most.
