Ingredients

    For the Pita Chips:

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Zest of 2 large limes
  • 1 teaspoon chili or dried chipotle powder
  • 2 whole wheat or plain pita breads (split in half horizontally)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • For the Hummus:

  • 1 large (12-ounce avocado, seeded, peeled and coarsely chopped)
  • 1/2 packed cup arugula
  • 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1/2 large lemon)
  • 1 clove garlic (smashed)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (plus extra for seasoning)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (plus extra for seasoning)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. For the Pita chips: Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lime zest and chili powder. Using a pastry brush, brush the mixture on both sides of the bread halves. Sprinkle the breads with salt and pepper. Cut each bread half into 8 wedges and place on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until crisp and golden.
  3. For the hummus: In the bowl of a food processor, combine the avocado, arugula, beans, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely chopped. With the machine running, gradually add 2 tablespoons of olive oil until the mixture is creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Spoon the hummus into a serving bowl and serve the pita chips alongside.
