  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Chop parsnips into small cubes. Place in a large bowl with 1 tsp. coconut oil and a dash of sea salt. Mix well coating the parsnips with coconut oil, we recommend using your hands. Place flat on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  3. While parsnips bake, chop lettuce, avocado, sunflower sprouts, tomato, bell pepper, onion and mint leaves. Place ingredients in one large salad bowl (or divide it up into two individual bowls). Add pumpkin seeds.
  4. Next make dressing by mixing all of the ingredients together, add water to thin out a little. Dressing should still be thick.
