YUM - wasn't sure about the cinnamon in there, but it really works Try blending it all up (or whatever is left over) for a think soupy type stew - and a whole new and delicous meal!

This was excellent! Had it with bulgur wheat which I soaked in boiling water for 15 mins & then threw into the pot, stirred everything together and dished up! Delicious recipe - to be made again! Thanks Bunny!

When I had a vegetarian visitor I looked for a recipe to try and found this one. It is absolutely fantastic. I live in southern Spain and aubergines and courgettes are plentiful at the moment, chickpeas are always available for use so I had no problem with all the ingredients. I have used this recipe several times now as a starter (appetiser) for a three course meal, using fish, chicken or pork to follow on with. It has been so popular with my friends I have put them onto Recipezaar to get the details. I served the stew with my homemade wholemeal bread. Thanks for this recipe.
