Pumpkin Hummus And Basil Pita Chips

There is nothing like thin crisp homemade pita chips. You can season them anyway you like; I like to add a sprinkle of smoked paprika and a fine sea salt. the hummus is creamy and smooth. The more you process, the smoother it gets, so customize to your liking. This recipe is perfect for fall when all things are pumpkin.

3Preheat oven to 400º

4Cut each pita round into small triangles – choose the size you wish to serve

5Put a single layer of pita on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with basil oil and sprinkle with sea salt.  Do not pile too many pita pieces on the sheet or they won’t crisp. 

6Bake until lightly browned; about 15 minutes.  Spread on a wire rack to cool; sprinkle with salt while still warm.  

7When cooled and crisp arrange on a platter surrounding a bowl of your creamy hummus. Drizzle olive oil over the hummus and sprinkle with chopped toasted pumpkin seeds and dried thyme.

8These can be stored in a bag or container for up to two weeks.
