Vegan Vegetable, Split Pea & Quinoa Stew

I have not used any complicated spice mix combination, I just kept it very straight forward and used only a couple of spices such as turmeric powder and cumin powder.

Quinoa, vegetables and split pea are slowly cooked in the spice combination and finished by adding spinach leaves. The key here in this recipe is to cook the stew on a very slow flame for about 25 to minutes.
