Pitta chips and guacamole are by far my ultimate weakness. I could easily eat an entire bag of Marks and Spencer pitta chips whilst watching an episode of Embarrassing Bodies: Fat Edition (ironic, I know, but that show is another weakness of mine!).
I normally make pitta chips at home using store bought pitta bread, but, last week, I got to thinking. There are so many articles out there that claim the healthy food being thrust in our faces isn't, in fact, as healthy as they seem. So, I got adventurous and decided to make pitta bread from scratch.
I don't know why I never thought about it before really. Pitta bread to me always seems so foreign like Naan bread and I never thought i could actually recreate it in my own kitchen! I will admit, it's not as enjoyable as the store bought kind, but the taste is there and at least I know what's in them!
You can find the recipe I used to make the pitta bread here. It was surprisingly easy and I definitely recommenced you give it a try!
Once the pitta bread was done, I broke it up into pieces, laid them out on a baking sheet and drizzled some olive oil on top. Top it off with some salt, pop them in a hot oven for 10-15 minutes and you've got yourself some (relatively) guilt free pitta chips!
While they were in the oven I also whipped up a bit of my 'famous' (If two people are obsessed with it it counts as famous, right?) guacamole. This recipe couldn't be any simpler: 2 Avocados, 1 red onion, 2 cloves of garlic, the juice of 1 lime and some salt all mushed up in a bowl.
Done in less the 5 minutes and incredibly delicious!
Let me know if you try out this recipe! What's your ultimate snacking guilty pleasure?
