This wonderfully cleansing dish is incredibly alkalizing too – which is such a bonus! I love the creaminess of the avocado dressing here, it really transforms a few humble ingredients into a delicious meal.


• 2-3 carrots, spiralized
• 2 ripe avocados, roughly chopped
• Juice of 1 lemon
• 1 tablespoon sweet miso
• 1 small clove garlic, grated
• A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
• 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
• 1 cup cilantro, chopped
• 2/3 cup pea shoots

To garnish
• Tamari toasted seeds
• Finely grated zest of 1 lime
• 1 tablespoon pumpkin oil


1. Place carrots in a bowl.
2. Put the avocados, lemon juice, sweet miso, garlic, and salt in a blender and blend until completely smooth.
3. Pour this dressing over the carrot “noodles” and mix in – using your hands is best I find – then stir in the red onion and cilantro.
4. Divide the pea shoots between 2 plates, add a pile of the “noodles” on top, garnish with the tamari-toasted pumpkin seeds and lime zest, and drizzle the pumpkin oil over the top.
