For the Granola

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place olive oil, maple syrup, and brown sugar in a pot and bring to a simmer until the sugar has dissolved.  Meanwhile place all the other ingredients into a bowl.  Pour the liquid into the bowl over all the ingredients.
    With a rubber spatula that has been lightly coated with oil, mix the granola well until all is incorporated. Then pour onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and spread evenly on the sheet pan.
    Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes to 50 minutes stirring the granola every 15 minutes to ensure even baking.  Take out and cool.
    Meanwhile in a food processor place 3 parsnips that are chopped and 1 cup of water.  Puree the in the food processor until all the parsnips are small little pieces (think bruniose or small dice)  and are about the same size.  
    Strain out the water from the parsnips and try to dry as much as possible with paper towels. Then in a small pot with oil at 325 degree fry the parsnips in batches until golden brown.  Strain out and season with salt.  
    Once the granola has cooled take 2 cups of the granola and pulse in a food processor until it resembles the same size as the parsnips roughly or "soil".  
    You don't want to grind so much that doesn't have texture (this is the crunch in the dish).  Then mix the fried parsnips to the granola and set aside.

For the Avocado Purée

  • Place basil and jalapeño in a food processor and puree for 10 seconds.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth.  Season with salt and set aside.  

For the Dressing

  • Place olive oil white balsamic in a small bowl with a pinch of salt.

To Finish

  • Using a round mold place a few dollops of avocado puree in the bottom.  Then add your parsnip "soil on top of the puree.  Place potatoes, carrots, and peas in a small bowl and lightly dress the vegetables with the dressing.  Season with salt.  
    Then place one carrot in the back of the puree standing up.  Then alternate jicama rounds, radish, and persimmon around the mold.  Add potato, and peas.  
    Then dress the beets with dressing and add them to the plate as well.  Finish with sorrel, nasturtisms, and a final drizzle of dressing over the vegetables.  Serve and enjoy!
