Saute veggies until light brown adding liquid as needed. Mince the garlic and add to the pan. Add fresh thyme and basil. Cook for 2 more minutes, until garlic is soft. 

  4. Pour chickpea batter into a non-stick pan. Let batter cook for two minutes so bottom can set. Add the sauteed vegetables and cooked for 5 more minutes. Transfer the whole pan to oven. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes until cooked all the way through. 

  5. Remove from oven. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice into wedges and enjoy!
