San Choy Bow

San Choy Bow originated from China - traditionally made with pork mince Dr Libby has added this dish to her new cook book but taken out the meat and replaced it with protein rich quinoa and chickpeas.  I made this last night for dinner and it was enough to have as a main dish.  The quinoa and chickpeas are so filling!
