Add the broccoli florets to a food processor. Using the S blade, blitz until they resemble a rice consistency.

(This makes it fluffier.) Option to enjoy raw if you prefer but you may need more dressing or olive oil.
Place the pumpkin seeds on a baking tray. Roast for 5 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Place all the dressing ingredients together in a food processor like a Magimix and blitz until smooth. Season to taste.
