Spread your chickpeas in a single layer on a lined baking tray and bake for 30 minutes. Half way through baking, gently shake the tray so you your chickpeas bake nice and evenly. Once done, remove from the oven and set aside.

In a large serving bowl, add the greens and cabbage to a large bowl and drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil and some salt and pepper.

Using your hands, massage the greens and cabbage for 2-3 minutes until well coated and has slightly softened. To the bowl add the broccoli, parsley and coriander. Toss well.

Add the dressing and continue to toss until all the veggies are coated. Divide amongst bowls and gently toss to combine. Top with the crunchy chickpeas, a sprinkle of chia seeds and then some sliced avo.
