Hummus crostini is one of those recipes that doesn't really count as a recipe. Consider this recipe an assembly of delicious food combinations that results in a lovely appetizer with amazing flavor. The base of this crostini is store bought crostini bites found in the bakery section of the grocery store. These are also easy to make by slicing a crusty French baguette into 1/2 inch slices, drizzling with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic to be baked until crispy in a 375 degree oven for about 6 minutes. Watch them closely so they do not burn. Mine crostini came from the bakery department for a low price and they were already pre-seasoned.
These crostini are topped with a roasted red pepper hummus from the deli aisle. Caramelized onions, which are chopped sweet vidalia onions caramelized in 2 TBSP of butter in a non-stick pan. Carmelizing onions on a medium heat takes approximately 10 minutes, stir them occasionally so they do not burn and reduce heat if they are cooking too quickly.
For a fresh element, a sprig of tarragon makes them feel complete with a fresh pop of green color.
The options are endless for flavor combinations with hummus flavors and varieties. These would also be amazing with a black olive hummus topped with a sliced roasted red pepper.
