Instant Pita Chips (from Pita Bread)

Pita Chips, served here with spicy hummus

I like opening my sisters’ snack cupboards to sample my little nephew’s and niece’s weird snacks! (yogurt in tubes! cheese in a bottle! chocolate covered pretzels! lol!) One of my many new food discoveries in their kitchens was Pita Chips. So crunchy and salty! Since the chips tend to be higher in calories, I decided to make a lower-calorie versions using Pita Bread. I also cut them into smaller triangles to use  in salads (in place of croutons). It is also a yummy way to use ‘stale’ pita bread.

Recipe: Pita Chips

Categories: Appetizers/SnacksBreads

Accompaniments: Hummus

Servings: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 pita bread (store-bought)
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of black pepper powder
  • dried herbs such as basil/za’atar (optional)
  • spray of oil

Directions:

Pita Bread

  • Mist the pita bread with a short spray of oil or lightly rub some oil. Omit this if you are not using any seasonings.
  • Using a kitchen scissor, cut a pita bread into 8 equal parts (to form triangles).
  • Arrange on a microwavable surface which has holes on it to allow steam to escape. I use my IKEA microwave lid, which is perfect since it has several small holes.
  • If desired, sprinkle some seasonings such as salt and pepper on the Pita Bread.

Nuke em!

  • Microwave for 1-2 minutes (depending on your microwave) till toasty! I usually microwave for 1.5 minutes and let it cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • This method works with Rotli too, so if you like Rotli Chips, follow the same directions.

Enjoy!
