  • 4 large carrots, cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small handful pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup broccoli sprouts
  • 1 head of escarole (or other salad green, like romaine or spinach)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 375.  Cut carrots lengthwise and place in a mixing bowl.  Add 1/2 – 1 tbsp olive oil, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and toss until carrots are evenly coated.


Spread carrots out on a roasting pan and roast in oven for 25-30 minutes until browned.  Give carrots a stir halfway through.


While carrots cook, wash greens, slice avocado thinly, toast pumpkin seeds (if you like, I kept mine raw).


Prepare simple lemon dressing by mixing lemon juice with 1 Tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.


Remove carrots from oven, assemble salad, dress, and enjoy!
