Pita bread is so versatile and lends itself really well to all sorts of flavours you can stuff into it or drizzle on. Really popular in middle east cuisine as a vessel for dips or crumbled like croutons on fresh vegetable salads. You can toss them onto stews, vegetables or rice dishes as well. A few years ago, I discovered sumac and then za'atar, which I am completely obsessed with! Sumac is lemony and sharp and when you add thyme and sesame seeds, it really adds an earthiness, which is lovely.

Here's what you'll need

  • 3 pitas
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sumac
  • 2 tbsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. open up the pita pockets and tear into rough shapes about the size of tortilla chips

  2. place onto a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper

  3. in a bowl, mix the sumac, thyme and sesame seeds and you have just made za'atar (use it for vegetables or meats)

  4. sprinkle the za'atar onto the chips

  5. bake in a preheated 400° oven for 2- 3 minutes or until toasty and fragrant
