Better Late than Never: Post-Lockdown Comfort Food

Taken on our porch, which we were very, very happy to get back to.

Pita Chips & Cilantro Tzatziki

Pita Chips and Cilantro Tzatziki

  • 2 pita bread loaves
  • 6oz Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 large cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • cumin
  • mint
  • cilantro
  • olive oil
  • zatar seasoning (sumac, thyme, oregano, marjoram, salt, sesame seeds)
  • salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350. Cut each pita loaf into 8 wedges. Toss with a little olive oil and sprinkle with zatar. Bake in a single layer (try a cookie sheet) for about ten minutes, until golden brown.

While the pita chips bake, grate the cucumber, and finely chop a handful each of mint and cilantro. Combine cucumber, mint, and cilantro with yogurt in a small bowl. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper to taste (other traditional ingredients that you might consider tossing in: olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, parsley).

Sprinkle the pita chips with a bit more zatar when they come out of the oven. Drizzle with more olive oil if you like. Serve with dip immediately.
