Warmly spiced quinoa chickpea stew

This recipe from Dreena Burton’s “Let them eat vegan” is also available online. The full title is “Warmly spiced quinoa chickpea stew with figs”, but I used the dried apricot alternative mentioned in the recipe (as this saved me a trip to the shops). There’s lots of tastes and textures here: fennel, pine nuts, red pepper, the dried fruit and spices. A very tasty and filling meal which is wheat-free, gluten-free and soy-free.
