    1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the quinoa, onion, garlic and green pepper. Cook and stir 5 to 10 minutes until the onion is tender and the quinoa has lightly toasted. Stir in the passata and water, then season with the chilli powder, garlic granules and cumin. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Stir the quinoa occasionally as it cooks.
