CANAPES WITH AVOCADO AND GREEN PEA HUMMUS

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Makes 30

1 avocado

2 tablespoons lime juice

1/2 clove garlic, minced

Two 4.9-ounce cans sweet green peas, drained

1 teaspoon kosher salt (or 1/2 teaspoon table salt)

30 small pumpernickel rounds (or 8 slices pumpernickel bread, each slice quartered)

Cut the avocado in half, remove and discard the pit, and scoop out the flesh. In a food processor, combine the avocado flesh, lime juice, garlic, peas and salt. Process until mostly smooth.

Arrange the bread on a serving platter and spoon or pipe the avocado mixture onto each slice. If desired, garnish.
