Chickpea Crostini is excellent served with any wine of your choice – a perfect wine tasting appetizer. In fact, I first served this delightful appetizer at a wine tasting and they were a big hit with everyone. This spread can also be made ahead of time to cut your preparation work on party day.
If you like hummus, as I do, then you will definitely love this appetizer. This appetizer is so tasty and the flavor combination is absolutely wonderful. This is a delicious, easy to make, and healthy appetizer to serve your family and guests. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are one of the most perfect foods. They are loaded with protein and fiber, plus low in fat. This spread is also excellent serve with fresh vegetables.
When preparing this Chickpea Crostini, you also have the choice or option of processing the chickpea spread until very creamy or just until chunky creamy – your choice. I personally like the chickpea spread to be just a little chunky.
