So, I was poking around in the refrigerator this morning, and I discovered the half-used package of egg roll wrappers, left over after making Ratatouille Ravioli. That’s when the fun began.
I cut the wrappers on the diagonal corner to corner until they were in eighths. Some of them were coated in olive oil, lined up on a baking sheet, and sprinkled with zatar, a middle eastern spice blend including sumac, thyme, sesame seeds and salt. It’s a bright, savory blend, the sumac providing a slightly sour note. Some of them were coated in sunflower oil, lined up on a baking sheet, and sprinkled with a sugar/spice blend I had from another recipe. Finally, the few that didn’t fit on either pan were cut into even smaller triangles, fried in butter, and tossed in a bowl of vanilla sugar, that I make big jars of using regular sugar and a vanilla bean. The baking sheets went into a 400 deg F oven for about 7 minutes.
They are light, crispy, delicate and tasty. The zatar chips are perfect for the zucchini hummus I made the other day (I’ll share that soon, still working on it), and if they don’t disappear, the sweet chips will make great dessert garnishes.
So, what’s hiding in your fridge? Go find out, and have some fun. I’ll see you on down the Road.
