The Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips were flavoured with rosemary while the Homemade Pita Chips where flavoured with basil. Both were crispy and flavourful. They were great for snacking even without any dips.

This is a great way to use up leftover tortilla and pita bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 pack wholewheat tortilla
  • 1 bag wholewheat pita bread
  • olive oil for brushing
  • garlic powder for seasoning
  • dried rosemary or dried basil or herbs of your choice

Pita Pizza with Hummus and Mint

Minoo also prepared a snack item for the South Arm Community Kitchen. Minoo made a Pita Pizza with Hummus and Mint. This makes a healthy lunch box item or after school snacks.

Minoo used whole wheat pita bread as the base for the pizza. Instead of using tomato sauce for flavouring, Minno used hummus which is high in protein. Minoo used a store-bought prepared hummus for this recipe for simplicity. You can make your own hummus with this Creamy Hummus recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 cup plain hummus
  • 4 greek-syle whole wheat pitas
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot-red chili flakes
  • 1 yellow or red pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup shredded fresh mint
  • cumin and black pepper to taste

Qn: What is the only food that does not spoil?
An: Honey

Hello all. After eating out the past week, we’re blogging again about food at home. This is my (Suanne’s) creation — I call this PBPB, the Peanut Butter Pita Bread. I am preparing this as a snack for Ben’s flight to Atlanta today.

The PBPB is a very simple snack, filling and easy to carry (i.e. it does not get squished like sandwiches does). I made this for all the guys at home. All of them like it very much. We buy the Pita Pockets from the Superstore about once every two weeks. Each pack comes with 18 pita pockets and costs $4.19. About 23 cents each … it is cheap.
