Diabetic Friendly Lavash Chips

BY: Ward Alper, The Decadent Diabetic

Talking to my friend Michael last evening I was reminded how much I missed salty – crunchy after I was first diagnosed as a Diabetic. I was lucky to have the nutritionist from my local “stupidmarket” introduce me to Joseph’s Lavash. Suddenly the clump of tuna and shreds of lettuce on my plate became something I actually wanted to eat, a sandwich! Taking it a step further, I developed this “chip” recipe to have with my soups and as a reduced carbohydrate snack. Regular pita chips have been around for years but most pita has too many carbohydrates, at least for me. Give these a shot. I think you will love them as much as we do. Just a warning: like any chip these Diabetic compatible chips are high in sodium and fat – to keep control on your diet, check out the Meal Measure Portion Control Plate. My young Type 1 friends are crazy for these. They help make them and me feel like everybody else!

32 chips | Net carbohydrates 8 grams

Note: I serve these with soup in place of bread or crackers. But just by themselves the crunchy salty taste is a great substitute for chips.

PER EACH SHEET OF LAVASH

    • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons dry herbs to taste (Your choices)
    • oregano
    • basil
    • thyme
    • rosemary
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Combine seasonings, cheese and olive oil. Using a pastry brush, spread over the uncut sheet of Lavash.
  3. The Lavash is a rectangle. Place the rectangle so the longest sides are left and right. Cut in equal quarters and cut each quarter in 8 equal pieces to make a total of 32 chips.
  4. Bake at 375-400 degrees for 3 minutes, rotate and bake 2-3 minutes longer. WATCH LIKE A HAWK it burns very, very fast.
  5. Cool on rack.
