- 1 jar of Caramelized Garlic Love & Hummus

- French baguette cut into 24 slices
- For Crostini: Slice baguette into 24 pieces. Brush with olive oil and toast. Set aside until needed.

- Stir in the sliced garlic and ghee, and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Toss in half of the cilantro or flat leaf parsley.
- Remove from the pan and set aside.
- For Hummus: Open a jar of your favorite flavor of Love & Hummus (we love the Caramelized Garlic flavor for this recipe).

- Scoop 1 tablespoon of hummus on each round.
- Then a scoop of the sautéed shitake mushrooms on top.
- Garnish with fresh cilantro or flat leaf parsley, and serve.
