This delicious Pea Hummus Crostini recipe is easy and perfect for a Spring appetizer. Made with mint and tahini that gives a unique flavor. Vegan as well
Fresh Pea Hummus Crostini
Oh how I love the colors and flavors of spring. Now that fresh peas are in season, I want to take advantage and use them in a creative way. Granted, I love adding it into my Arroz con Pollo but this Fresh Pea Hummus Crostini takes it to a whole new level.
Imagine toasted layers of baguette served with a delicious and tangy spread and topped off with fresh radishes and microgreens. Sounds delish doesn’t it? They are perfect for a party or casual dinner.
You can also serve this Fresh Pea Hummus Crostini as a snack or to take on a picnic. The hummus is sweet, flavorful and delicious. It is easy to taste de deep flavors of the fresh pea alongside the crunchy spicy radish.
Naturally this appetizer is completely vegan and can be made gluten free simply by using GF crackers or bread such as the one I used for my open faced ham & cheese sandwich.
I recommend making a double batch of the fresh pea hummus. It’s so delicious that you’ll want to spread onto everything. I am addicted to it and regret not making some more. Since it will be Passover in a couple of weeks, spread it on top of a matzo, it would taste amazing.
This week has been long and hard with work and the next 2 are looking worse. With Passover happening soon, I need to start planning my menu, shopping, and cooking. I am expecting a lot of people this year. Yikes!
