This is super filling and busting with flavours – ginger, garlic, chilli, coriander and turmeric.  The quinoa is cooked in the creamy coconut milk curry mix.  You may find it too filling with the new potatoes too so feel free to leave them out or add less.  And of course ,I had to thrown in spinach for added nutrients, antioxidants and colour!
