What do you do with leftover Pita bread? I freeze them or turn them into crunchy munchy snack like these below .
Pita chips are a great alternative to the regular nachos . They are perfect to munch on with a dip of your choice as well as make a great vegan appetizer to entertain your guests. They are a great healthier choice as compared to other chips.
What I love about this recipe is that these pita chips are baked and not fried. You may use homemade or store bought leftover pita bread for making chips.
It all starts with gathering the ingredients. Slitting pita carefully in half if they are thick.
Brushing with oil and sprinkling some sesame seeds, pepper and dried herbs.
Cut each pita into equal triangles.
Brush oil on the pan and place the pita triangles.
Bake , cool , done!
Now munch munch! I have served it with creamy cannellini bean dip ,again a good change from the classic hummus. Recipe at the end of the post!

Want to make Pita bread at home from scratch – I follow this recipe .
The only change I make is keep it more whole wheat. So I have used 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of 1/2 cup that is mentioned in the recipe link.
1 cup (8 ounces) water, 105–110°F
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for oiling the bowl
1 tablespoon granulated sugar ( I use raw sugar)
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
Pin this for later.
