Pita Scoops With Chili
Concept: Get protein and protein-rich legumes down their gullets by using a pita chip as a spoon.
Execution: Pick up store-bought pita chips. Or, to make your own, cut a white or whole-grain pita into 6 or 8 wedges, brush with olive oil, and bake at 350° F until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes.
Variations: Tortilla chips (or tortillas cut and baked like the pitas; see above) are even crunchier than the pita variety. Instead of chili, try another protein-packed stew (like chicken cacciatore) or a hearty bean salad.
