Keep covered and remove from the heat to finish cooking for a further 5 minutes, or until tails have sprouted and all of the water has been absorbed. Keep warm.

  4. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan or wok over low-medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic, until softened. Add the kale and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes, until wilted. Add the sesame seeds and chilli flakes and toss to combine.
  5. To serve, arrange the kale, quinoa, wakame, fermented vegetables and avocado into serving bowls. Drizzle with the tahini sauce and scatter with roasted cashews and extra sesame seeds.
