Making your own healthy chips for dipping in whatever sauce you're planning to make is really easier than you might think. And by making the chips at home instead of buying them from the supermarket you skip lots of salt. Tens of grams of salt. Way more salt than you'd ever want to have in your blood stream at a time. :)
Considering that these home-made chips only take a few minutes to make, I'd say it's worth it. And as a bonus, they're also an ideal way to use up stale pitas instead of discarding them. And no store-bought snack can match the charm of warm chips freshly taken out of the oven. :)
Last year: Pesto and caper focaccia (Italian) (vegan).
Two years ago: Tomato gratin provencal with garlic butter baguette.
Three years ago: Baby making and no cooking :).
Ingredients (serves about 2 people):
- 3 slightly stale pita breads (or wheat tortillas)
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- a bit of freshly ground sea salt
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Cut the pita breads into triangles, like this:
Arrange all the triangles you obtain on the baking sheet. Lightly brush them with oil or sprinkle the oil on top and toss them around. Also sprinkle the salt.
Put them in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes or until they look crispy and golden. Take out and it's done. Dig in! :)
