Day 60: Garlic Pita Chips

     I happened to be randomly browsing through the Jewish magazine “Tribe Life” the other day, which I picked up at the library, and found this wonderful pita garlic toast recipe.

    I showed my boyfriend, who absolutely loves garlic and pita bread, and he was super stoked to try it out. We went to the grocery store without the recipe, which is always smart (not), so we ended up missing a few ingredients. My boyfriend then took it upon himself to alter the recipe, and it ended coming out amazing. He decided to cut the pita bread into smaller pieces so it would be more like pita chips and got some plain hummus to dip it in.
Pita Garlic Chips
½ cup vegan margarine
1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley (we used dried parsley…doesn’t work as well but it will do)
Garlic Salt
6 to 8 pita rounds, cut into triangular slices
    Step 1: In a food processer blend together all ingredients except the pits bread of course. (Any extra spread you are not using immediately freeze it in cubes by putting it in your ice cube tray. Just unfreeze it at room temperature when needed)

    Step 2: Cut the pita bread into triangular chip size slices. The spread the butter mixture across the top of the pita bread, and then arrange the pita chips in one layer on a aluminum foil baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 400 f and bake until lightly browned and crisp, approximately 5 minutes.

(12 servings)
