I invented a simply gorgeous little appetizer for a brunch I had a few weeks ago. It is pretty simple, and ends up looking so pretty, you just want to sit and look at them for a while.
I’d found, on sale in the grocery store, these little Athens brand “Mini Fillo Cups”–they are pre-baked, pre-shaped little shells of phyllo dough. They come in plain white, red (sun-dried tomato) and green (spinach).
I made a batch of hummus, which you can find here, spooned a little hummus into each phyllo cup, and added garnishes. One tray had red cups with the hummus, sliced olives, and a leaf or two of cilantro. Another tray had the green cups with hummus, and slivers of yellow bell peppers. You could really be creative (or not) with what you use for the garnish, because it ends up so pretty.
