Source of recipe: We try to eat as much quinoa as we can, and I purchased some pre-rinsed quinoa which convinces me to make it even if I don't feel like it. Gotta use it up! We love samosas and Indian food has a special place in our hearts. We haven't even considered making gluten-free vegan samosas, but after making this dish we are adding it to our list. This is a rather easy meal that can be made in advance and stored in the fridge; the flavors will only get better with time. Love how turmeric makes everything so yellow and bright!

This was a very tasty and simple dish to make, perfect for a weeknight. I have never eaten quinoa and potato together before, but it was excellent. I added a bit extra potato and peas to the dish, but basically followed the recipe otherwise. It was served with steamed kale.


This was really good! I added more of the spices, added some curry, and also a little bit of soy sauce, which helped bump up the flavor.


We thought this was quite good - basic, but pretty delicious.  I added carrots and some leftover cauliflower - boiled them with the potatoes....used 4 cloves of garlic and added a ton of spice - I didn't measure, I just dumped them in, so I'm sure I used a lot more than what was called for - I always do.  Added some sriracha on top - yum!


This was really good! I doubled the potatoes and peas, roasted the potatoes in spices, and sauteed the onions, garlic and peas in the coconut oil and spices. I also added curry powder and black salt (or pink Himalayan salt). When I combined the quinoa, veggies, and potatoes it tasted really yummy--but I found that the roasted potatoes made it a bit on the dry side--I ended up adding a little bit of salsa (it's just what I happened to have in the fridge...) and some rooster sauce (I love everything really spicy!) and it made it PERFECT! It really came out super tasty--I liked this recipe a lot--also, I was thinking if you decided to boil the potato you could make a potato-quinoa mash that would probably taste excellent as a samosa filler! I think I am going to try that next! <3


this was pretty good, a little bland, but in a good way. I would make again. Thanks for posting! OH, and i like the idea about using it in a wrap of some sort!


This was ok. I liked it better room temperature than warm. Might make a wrap out of it for the leftovers.


This was pretty good. It was a bit bland-next time I will double the spices. ;-) Thanks for sharing!


This was lovely!  I added carrots, extra peas, and used 2 potatoes instead of 1.  Next time I may add some cabbage, too, just to make it a little more veggie-full.  Thanks for a delicious and very flexible recipe!  ;)b
