Shrimp hummus crostini

Posted by

Here is a perfect summer brunch food idea for a small gathering. Your guests will be impressed with these super easy crostini with green hummus and juicy shrimps.

This hummus is prepared with parsley and microgreens. However,  you could use classic or any other flavor of your choice. Hummus forms a lovely base on toasted baguette slices. 

I prepared the hummus a day before, which made it super easy to assemble.

Cook the shrimp just before serving. Lemon juice, garlic, and thyme help the shrimp shine through. 

Top them with your favorite garnish, herb, or microgreens to make them stand out.
