Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; roughly chop the broccoli. Quarter the lime. Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Halve and pit the avocado; using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then medium dice. Place in a bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly tender. Turn off the heat. Carefully stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges (you will have extra).
