Garlic-Oregano Grilled Pita Bread

Serving Size: 6
Total Time:

Skip the salty store-bought pita chips and grill your own for dipping in hummus or other healthy bean spreads (if you don't have time to make the garlic-oregano pitas, just grill plain pita triangles, preferably whole wheat).   

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped oregano
  • 6 (6-to 8-inch) pocketless pita bread rounds
  • Kosher salt to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a small heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Cook garlic, turning once, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Discard garlic and remove skillet from heat, then stir in oregano.
  2. Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas).
  3. Oil grill rack. Grill pitas, 3 at a time, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes total per batch. Transfer to a cutting board and brush both sides with garlic-oregano oil. Cut pitas into wedges. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve warm.
