Peas and Carrots, Please Canapes

For those who didn't catch me on WWLP's Mass Appeal last Friday, here's an easy, breezy dish to whip up when company comes a-calling. The complete recipe is below, too.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Juice of one-half lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8-oz. frozen green peas, steamed or sautéed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large carrot, cut into thin rounds (or flowers)
  • 30 small pumpernickel rounds, baguette slices or gluten-free crackers


Add all ingredients, except bread/cracker, into food processor or blender. Pulse to combine taking care to not over-blend. Top each round with spread and add carrot garnish.
