A few months ago my friend, Bread Lady, taught me how to make tabouli. She also shared her secret to making the best pita chips. I love the pita bread at Phoenicia, an awesome Middle Eastern deli and bakery in Austin.
What you need:
- pita pocket bread, white or wheat
- olive oil
- salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut pita bread into wedges.
Separate the two layers of pita.
Place separated pita wedges, inside of the pita is facing up, on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and brush each pita wedge to distribute the oil.
Sprinkle pita chips with salt.
Bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Watch the pita chips closely!
Ahhh... golden brown pita chips.
Enjoy with your favorite hummus, baba ghanoush, guacamole, salsa, dip or whatever makes your pita happy.
Thanks again Bread Lady!
