easy & delicious snack to impress friends or just have your own ~girl dinner~ by @thecarboholic 

“One of my favorite snacks to have in the kitchen is homemade pita chips with a high quality dip. I recently discovered @yaza.foods’s high-protein, low-fat Labneh made with no preservatives or added sugar! It comes in three flavors- plain, Za’atar & Olive Oil, and Spicy Chili. #YazaPartner

Below you’ll find a recipe for my Homemade Za’atar Pita Chips + Labneh Dip. This recipe uses Yaza’s Plain Labneh, but incorporates the flavor profiles of the other dips too!

Pita Chip Ingredients:
4 round pita breads (wheat, white, or mix)
1/3 cup EVOO
4 tbsp zaatar 
1 tsp salt

Scallion Chili Oil (modified from @nytcooking)
1/4 cup olive oil
6 scallions 
1/4 tsp chili flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two sheet pans with olive oil and set aside. Cut the pita bread into triangular slices, and split apart. Place onto greased sheet pans. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, za’atar, and salt. Using a pastry brush, coat each piece of pita with the oil/za’atar/salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes until brown. 

While the pita chips are baking, slice the scallions, including the white stems. In a small pan over medium heat, place the olive oil, scallions, and chili flakes. Stir frequently until the scallions begin to brown. Immediately remove from heat and cool. 

Top the labneh with the scallions and chili oil, and serve with the cooled pita chips.”
