1 pomegranate

3. Bake the sweet potato for 10 min, add the rinsed broccolini. Bake for another 10min, then remove from oven.
4. Place the chickpeas on a different baking tray. Add a drizzle of oil, the garlic powder, chilli and cumin. Bake for 5 min until they go a little crispy.
5. Put the stemless kale into a bowl, squeeze half the lemon, the olive or avocado oil and a pinch of salt. Massage for 5 min or until soft.
