First start with the roasted chickpeas.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Open and rinse a can of chickpeas.  Line a baking tray with parchment paper.  Place the chickpeas on the parchment paper.  Grind black pepper on top of the chickpeas.  Drizzle olive oil on the chickpeas and make sure they are thoroughly coated.  Roast for 30-35 minutes.

While the chickpeas are roasting, start the quinoa.  Rinse 1/2 cup quinoa in a small sieve.  Place in a small pot along with 1/2 cup water, plus a little extra splash of water.  Bring this to a fast simmer.  Then reduce to a low simmer and place a lid on top.  Cook for 17 minutes.

Place quinoa, roasted, chickpeas, and avocado in a bowl.  Mix throughly.  Add sea salt to taste.  Enjoy!
