Pain Paillasse artisan bread works perfectly in this Mediterranean Apricot Crostini, offering it a rustic, slightly sweet bread with a caramelized crust. The hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and feta cheese create a delicious topping for this crostini that is finished with fresh parsley and microgreens. My family loved the soft center of the Pain Paillasse along with the crisp, caramelized crust.  It would be perfect paired with soup, pasta or toasted for breakfast with a spread of butter, but today it’s the ideal base for a fall crostini appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of Apricot Pan Paillasse, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup hummus of your choice

  • Microgreens and parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  3. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Spread a thin layer of hummus on the crostini followed by the tomatoes, cucumber, matchstick carrots and feta cheese.
  5. Garnish with microgreens and fresh parsley.
