Mediterranean Apricot Crostini

The following recipe and photography was provided courtesy of Julia of A Cedar Spoon.

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 this time around, it’s the ideal base for a fall crostini appetizer.
