Updated Jul 30, 2010

Ingredients

Pita Chips

  • 2 pita (pocket) breads (6 inch)
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Tapenade

  • 1 medium eggplant (1 1/2 lb)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, drained

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Cut each pita bread around edge to make 2 rounds; cut each round into 8 wedges. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Mix oil and cumin; brush mixture on pita wedges. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until light brown.
  • 2
    Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Peel eggplant. Cut eggplant into fourths; cut each fourth in half crosswise. Place eggplant pieces on cookie sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
  • 3
    In food processor or blender, place eggplant and remaining tapenade ingredients. Cover; process or blend about 1 minute or until well blended. Serve with pita chips.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Prepare the tapenade up to 8 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate. The pita chips can be made up to 48 hours ahead and stored in a food-storage plastic bag.
  • tip 2
    If you're in a hurry, pick up bagel chips or a variety of crackers at the supermarket instead of making the pita chips.
  • tip 3
    To reduce the fat in the pita chips, spray the pita wedges with olive oil-flavored cooking spray and sprinkle with cumin, instead of brushing with the oil-cumin mixture.
