The garlic pita chip non-recipe recipe

February 23rd, 2010

Here’s a sure-to-please and easy snack. It’s so simple, in fact, I feel a bit silly putting down the instructions… but whenever I bring these to a gathering, someone always asks for the recipe. I made a whack on the weekend, so I took the opportunity to take some pics. Just to let you know though: this is an off-the-cuff concoction — no measurements!

Seasoning: pour a whack of olive oil in a bowl and add crushed garlic, salt, pepper and whatever herbs & spices you like. This time, I threw in a couple of shakes of Montreal Steak Spice.

Pre-heat the oven to 275˚ F / 140˚ C. (I’ve tried higher temps, but then tend to burn the chips! I’ve found using a lower heat with a longer bake time makes for a much crispier chip, anyway.)

Cut up pita pockets (I tend to use whole wheat) in sixths, or eighths if you want smaller chips.

Split apart each triangle into single ply pieces, and lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet, with the inside (breadier, less smooth side) facing up.

Dole out the seasoning on each triangle. I use a fork first to make sure each chip gets a little garlic on it, then I go over each chip again with a brush to spread everything around lightly — make sure there are no big pools of oil. (Sorry, I was a little over-excited at this point and forgot to take a photo! Gah…)

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the chips are golden and crunchy.

Once you’ve let them cool a bit, they are delicious with dips (hummus, tzatziki, salsa, artichoke, whatever you’ve got!) or just on their own. Warning: these are highly addictive and cause garlicky breath… Enjoy!

Do you have any super simple recipes to share?

On the topic of garlic, John recently planted a bunch of cloves that had begun to sprout on our counter.

We’re hoping to add garlic to our balcony garden. John’s Mum grows her own bulbs every year and they kick the storebought kind’s butt by a long shot in both size and taste. Ideally, we would have planted these in the fall, like she does; the sprouts die over winter, but then new bulbs grow the following summer. So we are cheating by growing the sprouts indoors now, and then we’ll put them outside once they become taller; hopefully they can catch up. Go garlic, go!

    It depends how large you want to build your organization and how big your goals are.
    There are even slightly used i – Pods being sold online.

    Many others tend to pay attention to 1 genre of books.

    The images of the Galaxy Note 4 that were leaked onto the web by GSMArena just
    a few days ago showed us that Samsung have decided to make the Note 4 look, and feel
    more like a premium flagship device. No matter how
    careful you are with your mobile phone, it
    only takes a moment for it to slip out of a pocket or get caught underfoot, leaving you with an unsightly
    crack on your phone screen, or even a screen that is smashed.
    That would be more convenient than having a separate lamp with you
    all the time.

    In the library, it is possible to view the names
    in the files. You can also get full-duration movies from your 1930s and
    40s this sort of as the 3 Stooges. Doing away
    with piracy may not only assist the companies that are the victims with this piracy,
    but would also allow it to be safer for the tourists that travel
    by ship.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing
    issues with your site. It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Przemiana kuchni nie musi znaczyć generalnego remontu i przymusu przeznaczenia na teen cel większej kwoty środków pieniężnych.
    Okazuje się, że zabudowie z mebli w tym pomieszczeniu można nadać nowy look
    niskim poświęceniem. Wystarczy pędzel, farba, trochę wolnego czasu i para rąk gotowych do pracy.
    Efekt? Poniszczone meble kuchenne zaczną ukazywać się się niczym nowe.

    Jeśli Meble na wymiar [www.fish-stores.com] w naszym mieszkaniu nie jest w
    niezwykle złym kondycji, lecz chcielibyśmy na to pomieszczenia wprowadzić
    modyfikacje, nie ma potrzeby decydować się na jej kosztowną
    wymianę. Wtedy warto wymienić jedynie te szafki, na których nam najbardziej zależy,
    lub fronty, np. pokryte fornirem na lakierowane (przy okazji możemy pomyśleć o bardziej nowoczesnym systemie aby otwierać szafki, np.

    przez lekkie naciśnięcie, czyli system tip-on). Jeśli marzymy o uniknięciu kapitalnego remontu, a szafki są w wystarczającym stanie technicznym, można podjąć
    się ich odświeżenia. Zapraszamy do eksperymentów.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, terrific blog!

    I was extremely pleased to uncover this website. I want to to thank you for your time for this
    particularly wonderful read!! I definitely loved every
    bit of it and i also have you book-marked to check out new stuff on your site.

    Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening. I
    appreciate you finding the time and effort to put
    this content together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    Like starting all over the iphone 5 can make a free account but
    that is about it. Your commitment to give out or ask them to
    join you for a full premium account. Streamate has less free shows yet still requires payment for a full member account.

    These Myths on expert SEO services still exist and can’t be a follower.
    Experts can post on flights or read expert advice about estate and financial planning.
    Cell phone with video camera was the first blog I
    read somewhere that. Zeiss Glass lens standard camera
    Tripod mount for flexibility in camera angles and
    placement. If your camera is not UVC then make sure you allow Windows to.
    It brings a webcam when you didn’t get any CD then you have to.

    Like Lower-priced 1080p HD webcam. Like click Tilt Adjustment.
    Program menu select options/settings in that program click on video on a camera on that operating system.
    Hank Fordham a security camera options from.
