Preheat oven to 200C/gas mark 6/400F

Cook the quinoa in a pan of simmering water for about 20 minutes, or until the water has absorbed.

Cut the peppers in half, removing the seeds, and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Heat the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat, and cook the onion and garlic until they begin to soften. Add the courgette, mushrooms, tomato, cumin and coriander, and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally. Tip the vegetables into a bowl and stir through the crushed walnuts. Add the quinoa and season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, and stir everything together.
