Clean Eating - - RECIPE INDEX -

A sprin­kling of Za’atar, an aro­matic Mid­dle East­ern blend of herbs and spices, gives these baked pita chips ad­dic­tive fla­vor with­out the need for a ton of oil or salt. Be sure to let the dip sit in the fridge for a cou­ple of hours be­fore serv­ing – this soft­ens the kale and mel­lows out its bit­ter­ness. You can also serve with veg­eta­bles for dip­ping.

½ cup finely chopped stemmed kale

2 tbsp each finely chopped fresh chives and flat-leaf pars­ley
