Blanch the broccoli for 2-3 mins then drain.

Heat the oil in a pan and cook half the spring onions for 30 seconds or so, add the spring greens and sauté for another 30 seconds. Then add the broccoli, stir through and take off the heat.

Transfer to a dish, add the sliced avocado, radishes and rest of the spring onions.
