Empty the quinoa and vegetable stock into a small pan and simmer, covered, for 15-18 minutes, or until the stock has been fully absorbed.

Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Stir the garlic, chilli, lime zest and juice, spring onions, coriander and soft cheese into the warm quinoa, until combined.

Season with black pepper.

Divide the quinoa between the lettuce leaves and top with the red pepper and a little extra coriander.

Tuck in the ends of the lettuce and roll each one up, securing with a skewer or cocktail stick.

Serve immediately.
