It has been on my list to make pita bread for some time.
I think it may have started when Zach and I lived in Champaign. They have a plethora of restaurants, which meant we pretty much had the option to eat our way around world cuisines. Zach loved this one restaurant, that we could get chicken swarma at. Chicken swarma is one of Zach’s favorite things. I had no clue what he was talking about, but I tried some anyways, what could it hurt? It was good! But is the usual with us when we eat out, I go ahead and get the bread and give it to Zach. In this instance they served it with pita.
Then I made some naan bread with butter chicken. I was so happy with the results, I next set my eyes on pita bread.
And a few weeks ago, I finally made some!
I remember as a child my mother would make us pita sandwiches, stuffed with my favorite sandwich things: lettuce, cheese and salami.
So my excitement when they puffed up while baking and actually had a pocket was beyond.
My mind was swirling.
I’m going to make my own chicken swarma finally.
I’m going to make my own sandwiches. What can I fill those pockets with now?
I can make pita chips.
Options. I had options.
And so do you. Go wild with these guys. Continue reading “Gluten-Free Pita Bread”
