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 1 c. 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.
