Toss the parsnips and apple in a bowl with 1 Tbsp oil, sea salt and black pepper. Spread evenly onto a foil-lined bake sheet and roast until fork tender, about 20- 25 minutes.
To make the Pecan Gremelota, toss the shaved Brussels in a small bowl with the pecans, parsley, pomegranate seeds, lemon juice and zest, plus 1 Tbsp olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Set aside.
Transfer the parsnips and apples to a blender. Add the stock and puree until smooth. Add the maple, and season with more salt and pepper. Pour soup into a large saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through.
To serve, spoon into bowls and season with gremolata.
To make the dressing, mix together the mustard, maple and vinegar in a small bowl. Whisk in enough extra-virgin olive oil slowly until the mixture becomes emulsified. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Set aside.
Slice the kumquats thinly and toss with good olive oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a large salad bowl, toss the kale, pear, pomegranate and kumquats together with the dressing. Plate onto salad plates and top with pumpkin seeds.

We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
