Notes

These homemade crackers have enough personality to stand on their own but they also go well with a roasted garlic and white bean dip or an olive spread.

Ingredients

  • 6 (each about 1 oz/30 g) whole wheat pitas 
  • ¼ (50 ml) cup olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) minced green onion (white and light green parts only) 
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh basil leaves (or 1 tsp/5ml dried) 
  • ¼ (1 ml) tsp fine sea salt 
  • ¼ tsp (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper 
  • Large rimmed baking sheet, ungreased

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

1. Cut pitas into quarters. Separate the top and bottom pieces. Place on baking sheet in a single layer, without overlapping if possible. Lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with green onion, basil, salt and pepper.

2. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until light brown and crisp. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before serving or storing (see Notes).

Variation: Use 1 tsp (5 ml) garlic salt instead of sea salt, flavored oils instead of olive oil or any herb of your choice instead of basil, following the proportions in this recipe.
