My favorite hummus-dippers are carrots and spinach. When I want something a bit more filling, I love store-bought pita chips and falafel chips but the costs add up. I find it cheaper to buy pre-made pita and turn them into chips in my kitchen.
|1. Cut your pita (whole wheat!) into manageable triangles.|
|2. Coat pita chips with your seasoning mixture. Be gentle, turn with a fork, so they do not break.|
- I recommend 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil at a time- you may have to replenish based on how much pita you are chip-ifying.
- For seasonings, use what you like! I would start with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of a variety of spices including 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
- (I just eyeball it).
- Our favorites are: cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, and garlic powder.
- Incorporate into olive oil.
|5. Let cool for a minute on the pan and transfer to a container. Enjoy on their own or dipped in hummus or another sauce/dip. |
I like to have these on hand for snacks for guests- always a big hit!
