If using frozen peas, place in a glass cup or bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, scoop the avocado into a medium bowl.
Add the lime juice and salt, then mash together with a fork until a creamy consistency is achieved.
Drain the defrosted peas and add them (or the fresh peas) to the avocado bowl together with your herbs of choice. Mix well.
Serve on a slice of sprouted-grain bread, in a wrap, on flax crackers, or in a bowl with fresh-cut veggies.
Garnish with sprouts (if using).
This smash is best served fresh, or within 30 minutes of making.
If you plan on making it for next-day lunch, put it in a small glass container with limited space on top, insert the avocado pit into the pea smash, seal and place in the fridge. The flavor will remain and the pit will keep the avocado from turning brown.
