I prepared this dish with organic veggies and - well, WOW!! Very flavorful and satiating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the spices for about 1 minute in 2 tablespoons of olive oil; then add chopped onion, peppers and garlic.
  2. Add sliced zucchini and more oil if needed.
  3. Add diced eggplant.
  4. At this point you will probably need to add more oil, since the eggplant absorbs a lot of it.
  5. When all is sautéed, add chickpeas but do not drain the liquid and tomatoes.
  6. Basil can be added at the last minute before serving over steamed rice.
  7. These ingredients can be varied according to your taste and imagination.
  8. I have tried many variations, such as adding sweet potatoes, other spices and substituting 1 10-oz can black beans for 1 10-oz can of chickpeas.
  9. Have fun and let me know your ideas and additions.
