1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each pita bread into 6 pieces and put on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt on top. Bake for 10 minutes.

2. In the meantime, add beans, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, powder, garlic clove, lemon pepper, and cayenne pepper to food processor.

Enjoy hummus with baked pita chips and fresh veggies..I particularly love sliced cucumbers with this hummus!

    Love those two website ssggteuions. Thanks for passing along. I’m in Portland and there are tons of great healthy restaurants pretty much everywhere. I feel like you can walk into any place and find a GF, vegan, veggie, healthy, local, organic option hahah. PDX also has great outdoor fitness options within an hour you could hike a waterfall, run a river trail, climb a mountain or go surfing.
