Cook the quinoa: Heat the oven to 375F to roast the chickpeas. Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse well. Add the quinoa, water (1 1/2 cup, 3 cups) and salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp) to a pot. Stir to combine. Bring the water to a boil on medium/high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and let simmer 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Remove the pot from heat and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
Roast the Spiced Chickpeas: Line a baking sheet with a non-stick liner or parchment paper. Place the spiced chickpeas on the baking sheet with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp) and salt (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp). Place the chickpeas on a single layer and cook until roasted – about 10 to 15 minutes.
Prepare the vegetables: Cut the lime in segments. Cut the broccoli in small fleurets. Place the broccoli in a glass bowl and steam it in the microwave for about 1 minute to 90 seconds. Shred the carrots. Separate the cilantro leaves.
The coconut milk in the green curry coconut sauce may harden when cold. Heat the green curry coconut sauce in a small pot on medium heat until warm – about 2 minutes.
Assemble & Serve: In serving bowls, place the quinoa. Place about 1/3 cup warm green curry coconut sauce on top of the quinoa in each bowl. Arrange the spiced chickpeas, steamed broccoli, shredded carrot and shredded cabbage on each bowl. Garnish with coconut, lime wedge and fresh cilantro.
