Spicy Pita Chips
Ingredients Makes: 64 triangles
8 pita bread pockets, cut into 1/8’s triangles
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced with green shoots removed
1 tsp cumin, ground
1/4 tsp coriander, ground
pinch of cayenne powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Raise oven rack to center to prevent burning.
In a large bowl combine olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, coriander, cayenne, sea salt and pepper. Add pita wedges and toss to coat. Make sure both sides of pita are evenly coated.
Spread pita wedges in a single layer on cookie sheets and bake for about 15 minutes or until pita is brown and crispy. Turn pita halfway through baking process to toast both sides evenly. Cool before serving.
