Toasted Pita Triangles

These keep very well in a ziplock bag. Serve with hummus.

  • 4-6 pita breads
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Coarse salt

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Using kitchen scissors, cut the pita breads crosswise (through the folded edge), forming 2 circles of bread from each pita.

3. Combine the oil and garlic in a small bowl. Brush the rough side of the bread lightly with the oil-and-garlic mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Stack the pitas and cut them into triangles.

4. Spread the pita triangles in a single layer on two baking sheets. Bake, rearranging the pitas so they will brown evenly, until crisp and golden, about 20 minutes.

5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
