To make the pita chips
- Preheat oven to 160C. Brush pita bread triangles with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds or a little smoked paprika (if using) and a little salt.
- Place on a baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes until crispy. Leave to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. They will keep for a few days.

- Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth, and season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
- Alternatively chop garlic and herbs finely and mash all ingredients together. The dip is best eaten fresh.
