First make the aioli. In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, paprika and salt. Taste and add more salt or lemon juice if desired. Set aside.
In a large cast iron or non stick skillet big enough for peppers to sit in a single layer heat avocado oil over medium high heat, until oil is shimmering and very hot.
Add peppers and let sit for about 30 seconds so they have a chance to char and blister before tossing. Cook, tossing every 30 seconds or so until peppers are charred all over and have softened slightly.
Peppers will be done once charred on all sides, and has started to soften, but is still bright green and holding it’s shape. For the best texture and flavor you don’t actually want them to cook all the way.
Serve warm, topped with generous pinch of flaky sea salt, alongside the garlicky aioli dipping sauce. Enjoy!
Trim stalk ends of the green beans and snap peas. Blanch green beans in large pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, drain and place them directly into bowl with ice water to stop them from cooking further. Drain and set aside
Repeat with the sugar snaps, only blanch one minute
Roughly chop almonds, toast slightly on skillet or in the oven
In small mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, orange zest and salt & pepper. Set dressing aside
Combine baby mustard greens, green beans, snap peas, and hot peppers in large mixing bowl then toss with dressing

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, whisk together the Dijon, maple and vinegar. Drizzle in the olive oil, whisking to combine. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Set aside.
To make the millet, place the millet in a small saucepan on low and allow to dry toast for a few minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cover and allow to cook, simmering for 15 minutes. Take off the burner and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Toss the cooked millet with some of the dressing and set aside. This can be done up to a day in advance. The longer the millet marinates in the dressing, the better. Store in the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before serving.
Toss the squash, grapes and shallot in a large bowl with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Spread onto a foil-lined half sheet pan and roast in the oven for 20 minutes until the squash is fork tender.
To assemble, plate some of the squash rings on a platter or plate, layering with the millet, greens and grapes. Drizzle any pan drippings and spoon a little more dressing on top. Garnish with walnuts and sea salt. Serve at room temperature.
