Lavender Chips

Lavender Chips

by Cristin McDonnell

This is an Armenian recipe for chips called lavash.  The recipe for lavash is from allrecipes.  I found a recipe for the lavender seasoning at Discover Lavender, a blog for cooking with culinary lavender.  When I saw that the recipe included dried seasoning, I went ahead and came up with my own recipe to top the lavash with.

Lavender Seasoning
1 tbsp. dried culinary lavender
1 tsp sea salt
1-2 cloves of garlic

Roast the one tablespoon of dried lavender in a pan on the stove for about 30 seconds.  Add all of the ingredients in to a food processor. Process them until the garlic is finely chopped.
Make the dough for the crackers/lavash. (I cut the recipe in half and it made four large crackers.)  Once you have rolled the dough out, lightly sprinkle the dough with the lavender seasoning and bake.  You can leave the lavender lavash whole or break it up into pieces.  These crackers are delicious dipped in hummus.

Three Varieties: Lavender Lavash, Sea Salt, & Lavender and Rosemary

*I made three varieties: one plain with sea salt, the  lavender lavash, and I added fresh rosemary to the lavender seasoning.  The lavender seasoning on its own was the favorite.
