Wash the squash and slice them in half. Remove seeds and bake until tender, about 40 minutes.
While the squash is roasting heat 1 tbsp. oil in a skillet and cook the finely chopped shallot and bell pepper until soft. Add spices, green peas, cooked quinoa and walnuts until warmed through. Flavour with pink salt and pepper.
Divide between the squash and place back in the oven for 5 – 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with fresh greens on top, I used broccoli and a big green salad.
