The best part: it’s delicious! Enjoy.
¼ of a large cauliflower broken into small florets
12 Brussel sprouts quartered
2 tablespoons of mung bean sprouts
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
A good pinch of salt
1 small beetroot peeled and grated
2 tablespoons of kimchi or sauerkraut
½ a ripe avocado halved
2 tablespoons alfalfa sprouts
2 tablespoons activated almonds
Place the cauliflower florets and the Brussel sprouts into a steamer and steam for around 8- 10 minutes until just soft. Remove from the steamer and place in a large bowl and gently mix through the coconut oil, salt and mung beans.
To serve, evenly distribute the cauliflower and Brussel sprout mix between two bowls. Then add to each bowl 1 tablespoon of grated beetroot, one tablespoon of kimchi, one tablespoon of alfalfa, 1 tablespoon of activated almonds and a quarter of the avocado each. Drizzle generously with the hemp seed ranch dressing. Season to taste with good quality salt and pepper if desired.
