    1. Bring water and quinoa to the boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add turkey mince and season with salt and pepper; cook and stir until turkey is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
    3. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    4. Transfer cooked turkey mixture to a large bowl. Add cooked quinoa, tomato passata and tomato puree. Stir well; add additional tomato passata as needed, until filling has the consistency of a stew.
    5. Arrange red peppers in a baking dish and spoon an equal amount of filling into each.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and top each stuffed pepper with grated Cheddar cheese. Continue baking until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.
