An ideal mid-week meal you can have on the table in under 30 minutes.  Combines the deep flavours of fenugreek with turmeric, ginger, and garlic with the nutty quinoa and sweetness of the potatoes.  A dish that ticks a lot of boxes in the taste department and fills your body with lots of fiber and nutrients.

Enjoy!  Joanne 🙂
