Garlic Hummus & Sea Salt Pita Chips

I love hummus. 

I am a non-discriminatory hummus eater. I have yet to find a flavor that I don't like. That said, garlic hummus remains one of my favorites. And this recipe is so easy. It's even better when paired with homemade pita chips, perfect for scooping up the garlicky deliciousness.

Best yet? This takes virtually no time to make. The chips and hummus take me less than 20 minutes (including baking time!) to whip up. Score!

Garlic Hummus & Sea Salt Pita Chips

For the hummus:
2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 a lemon, squeezed
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 cup tahini 
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

In a food processor, combine all ingredients, adding more water if needed to achieve desired consistency. Store in the fridge.

For the pita chips:
4 whole wheat pieces of pita bread
Olive oil
Sea salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Split pitas in half so that you have 2 circles. Stack them and cut into halves, then halves again and once more to make 8 triangles from each piece (16 total).

Place triangles on a baking sheet evenly (do not overlap). Drizzle with olive oil and salt. Bake 10 minutes. Serve hot or store in a ziplock bag.
