Step 1.
To prepare the nuts and seeds, heat extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add turmeric and fry off for 1-2 minutes. Add nuts and seeds and stir to coat. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring regularly until slightly toasted. Set aside.

Step 2.
To make the guacamole, mash all ingredients in a bowl or blend in a food processor. Season to taste and set aside. Left overs can be used as a dip.

Step 3.
To make the salad dressing, combine all ingredients except the extra virgin olive oil in a food processor. Blend and slowly add oil until dressing like consistency is reached. Add a splash of water, if necessary, to thin out further.

Step 4.
To assemble the bowl, arrange grains, spinach, cucumber, carrot, chickpeas, tomatoes, eggs/salmon/chicken and guacamole around the bowl. Drizzle with beetroot dressing and a sprinkle of the turmeric nuts and seeds.
