Sesame-Herb Pita Crisps

Sesame-Herb Pita Crisps


  • 1/3 cup shelled dry-roasted pistachios
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 4 (6-inch) whole-wheat pocket pitas, split in half horizontally
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided


Preheat oven to 350°. Place the first 6 ingredients (through marjoram) in a food processor; pulse until coarsely ground.

Arrange 4 pita halves, rough sides up, on a baking sheet. Brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Spread 4 teaspoons pistachio mixture over each pita half. Bake at 350° for 16 minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp. Repeat with remaining pita halves. Cool. Break each half into 4 pieces; serve with Feta-Peppercorn Spread and red grapes.
