Dips & Chips

I love crisps and sometimes instead of buying them I try to make a healthier option at home when I can.  These chips are simply wholemeal pita breads cut into triangles, drizzled with oil and dusted with something spicy like chilli powder or paprika or whatever you fancy and then baked on a high heat for five minutes .

The hummus is another 5 minute job and loving all things spicy I love this harissa version from my new cookbook Enjoy!
