gluten-free "pita" chips and hummus - meatless monday

While this "recipe" is scarcely a recipe, I was so excited to come up with a good gluten-free substitute for pita chips, that I wanted to share the results with you (especially any of you out there with celiac's or any of you simply working on a detox).

Very simply, I cut up some brown rice tortillas (Food for Life brand) and baked them in the oven for a few minutes. They turned out crispy and slightly still chewy. While that may sound weird, I thought it worked, and when served with hummus and carrot sticks, it was the perfect gluten-free snack to eat while vegging out and watching football. Just in time for the play-offs!

gluten-free "pita" chips with hummus
brown rice tortillas
extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
kosher salt for sprinkling
your favorite humus recipe (or store bought)
smoked (or not) paprika, optional

Preheat oven to 375. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Place wedges in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with salt. Let bake 5-10 minutes until lightly browned and crisped. Remove to serving platter with humus and carrot sticks. If preferred, drizzle humus with olive oil and sprinkle with a little smoked paprika.
