Dressing Ingredients:
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp coconut aminos
Juice of 1/2 lime
Pinch of salt and pepper

How to make it…
Preheat the oven to 180C fan assisted. (200C, 400F). Place the chopped peppers, carrots and courgettes on a baking tray and toss with 1 tbsp of olive
oil and a pinch of salt. Roast for 35 – 40 minutes until soft.

Add the broccoli florets to a food processor. Using the S blade, blitz until they resemble a rice consistency. Place the broccoli rice in a bowl and microwave
for 4 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a muslin cloth or fine tea towel and squeeze out any excess water. (This makes it fluffier). Option to enjoy raw if you prefer.

Place the seeds and pine nuts on a baking tray. Roast for 5 minutes until golden. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Fluff the broccoli
rice with a fork and mix through the roasted vegetables, olives, sun dried tomatoes, seeds, herbs and dressing and top with avocado.
