Preparation

1. Ladle 32 ml of olive oil into a heated, nonstick sauté pan. Add the onions and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss the pan over medium-high heat until tender. Allow to cool.

2. Slice the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit. Slice the into 1” squares while still in the skin. Scoop the avocado from the skin. Place in a stainless-steel bowl. Add the peas, sautéed onions and garlic, lime juice, cilantro, mint and 237 ml of olive oil to the avocado. Mix together thoroughly. In small batches, place the avocado mixture in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and purée until smooth. Place in a nonreactive storage container. Place a piece of film wrap directly on top of the hummus. Smooth the film out to prevent oxidation. Place a cover on the container, label, date and refrigerate until needed.
