Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Tip the quinoa into a small pan, pour in 400ml water, then stir in the tomato purée, garlic and bouillon powder. Cook, covered, over a low heat for 20 mins before adding the chickpeas, spinach and basil, then cook for a further 5 mins. Leave to stand for 5 mins, so all the liquid is absorbed.

  2. Meanwhile, rub the peppers with a little oil and place, cut-side down, on a baking tray. Roast for 10 mins, add the cherry tomatoes, then roast for 10 mins more.

  3. Stir the tomatoes, feta and pumpkin seeds into the quinoa, spoon into the pepper halves and serve with the rocket, tossed with the oil and balsamic vinegar.
