Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) or 180°C (356°F) for fan ovens.
Rinse the Brussel sprouts and remove the tip of the stem and the outer leaves.
Cut in half the sprouts and toss with extra virgin olive oil in a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Roast for 15 minutes (1).
In the meantime, bring water to a boil, add coarse salt to taste and cook the brown rice for 25 minutes or until soft (2).
To prepare the sauce for the Brussel sprouts, combine chili flakes, finely chopped garlic, 2 tbsp of lime juice, and 1 tbsp of vinegar (1).
Toss the chilli lime seasoning over the roasted Brussel sprouts and roast for an additional 10 minutes (2).
Chop the hazelnuts and roast in the oven for 8 minutes or until lightly golden (1).
While the sprouts and hazelnuts cook in the oven, prepare the avocado dressing.

You can also blend the ingredients in a food processor for a smoother vinaigrette.
Remove the roasted hazelnuts and vegetables from the oven and drain the brown rice.
