ROSEMARY-GARLIC PITA CHIPS

Lately I've been trying to eat three smaller meals with two good, healthy snacks during the day. I always feel better fueled that way, but finding snacks that are tasty and fill me up isn't always easy. Usually I reach for fruit or yogurt, but sometimes you need a dry/crunchy fix, you know? Well this is it for me!

It was an accident that I ended up making these. We had a whole package of whole wheat pita bread hiding in the back of the fridge, and it was a little hard by the time I discovered/remembered it. So I cut it up, brushed it with olive oil, and sprinkled it with the first tasty combination I thought of: garlic salt and dried rosemary.

Mmm :)

They turned out beautifully! I've been taking a little bag of them to work for a mid-morning snack. They're easy to make, of course (especially if you line the baking sheets so you don't have dishes to do!). I don't know if I'll make them all the time, but I'm definitely sticking them in my party food file. Throw them on a plate with some hummus, and you've got a party right there.

Rosemary-Garlic Pita Chips (Baked)

6 pita bread rounds (I used whole wheat)
olive oil for brushing
garlic salt (fine salt sticks better than course salt)
black pepper
dried rosemary

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a pizza cutter or kitchen scissors, cut each pita bread into 8 triangles (like a pie). Arrange triangles on lined baking sheets and brush both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with garlic salt, then sprinkle with pepper and rosemary.

Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until golden. (Check them often after 12 minutes or so to be sure they don't burn).
