These Za’atar Pita Chips are really pretty addictive.  They are baked so they are much healthier than deep fried chips.  If you want to leave the za’atar off then just use kosher salt and pepper as your seasoning.

INGREDIENTS

12 Pita Bread Pockets

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

3 Tablespoons Victoria’s Za’atar

Preheat your oven to 400º F.  Slice each pita bread into 10 triangles.  Place the triangles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  In a small size bowl combine the olive oil and the za’atar.  Brush each triangle with the oil & za’atar mixture.  Place in the oven and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.  You will want them to be light brown and crisp.  Be careful because if left unattended they will burn.  Serves 12

Za’atar

Za’atar

Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice mixture of herbs, sesame seeds, sumac and salt.  It is a spice blend that dates back to the 13th century.  Za’atar is used many ways, but most frequently used as a table condiment.  Dip warm flatbread into some olive oil and then dip into the Za’atar.  Trust me it’s delicious.  Za’atar also makes a great dry rub for both meats and vegetables.  Sumac is a bit difficult to find.  Go to a specialty spice store like, Kalustyans, or order online from Amazon.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 Cup Sumac

2 Tablespoons Thyme

2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds

2 Tablespoons Marjoram

2 Tablespoons Oregano

1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt

In a dry sauté pan, toast the sesame seeds on a high heat for two minutes.  Remove from the heat and let cool.  In a small size bowl combine the sumac, thyme, toasted sesame seeds, marjoram, oregano and kosher salt.  Store in an airtight container for up to a week.  Makes approximately 1/2 cup.
