Quick Crostini with Avocado and Green Pea Hummus

This recipe was taken from Nigella Lawson.  It is so good!!  I used 2 small avocados since I couldn’t find a regular sized one that was ripe.  The pumpernickel is perfect with this although I could not find the small cocktail pumpernickel rounds asked for in the recipe.  I just bought sliced pumpernickel rye bread, toasted it and cut it into squares. 



1 ripe avocado
2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp sea salt flakes or 1/2 tsp pouring salt
1 cup canned green peas, drained
30 small cocktail pumpernickel rounds


1. Spoon out the flesh of the avocado into a food processor, and add the lime juice and crushed garlic.
2. Add the salt and drained peas and then process until you have a Kermit-coloured puree.
3. Spread the pumpernickel rounds softly with the avocado and pea mixture and arrange on a large platter for serving.
