To dress up these bright green canapes for the holidays, consider topping each with a few slivers of roasted red pepper or thin slices of red radish.
CANAPES WITH AVOCADO AND GREEN PEA HUMMUS
Start to finish: 20 minutes
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.
