I'm not sure about socca – I have never had it. Sounds interesting though, garbanzo flour!
I buy the Shirataki Noodles regularly. They are different from Miracle Noodles, which are harder to find. Both have about the same texture, but Shirataki have more nutritional value (some protein and carbs). The texture is indeed unique, and you MUST follow the instructions on the package for cooking, but I've found them to be a good replacement for pasta if I'm making something that has a lot of other ingredients too, like a pasta salad with lots of veggies.
Hungry Girl has some great recipes using them. You can get her cookbooks at the library. (She's not vegan, though, so you'll need to make some substitutions.)
