- Place the quinoa in a heavy-based saucepan with 2 cups water. Cover and place over medium-high heat and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until all the stock is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
- Place the kumara in a saucepan and just cover with lightly salted water. Cook until tender, then drain.
- Place the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the kumara and cook until lightly browned. Add the tomatoes, sweetcorn and chilli and cook until the sweetcorn is hot, about 1 minute.
- Fork through the cooked quinoa, and the coriander and season.
