Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cups frozen pepper stir-fry vegetables
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
Pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus more for sprinkling
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 28-ounce can or 2 14 1/2-ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 19-ounce or 15 1/2-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 large eggs
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add stir-fry vegetables; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, grind coriander seeds, caraway seeds and salt coarsely in a spice mill, a dry blender or in a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1/4 teaspoon paprika and cayenne.
Add garlic and the spice mixture to the skillet; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and chickpeas; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and cook at a lively simmer until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with pepper.
Break eggs into separate quadrants of the stew, taking care not to break the yolks. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover the skillet and cook until the eggs are set, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle eggs with paprika. Carefully transfer an egg and some stew to each plate.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through step 3. The stew will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Fresh-vegetable variation: In Step 1, cook 1 medium sliced onion for about 2 minutes; add 2 diced bell peppers and cook for 3 to 5 minutes more. In Step 3, add 3 diced seeded tomatoes.
delicious and filling recipe
As someone who has a hard time thinking of a meatless meal as a real meal, this stew is fantastic. I tried it before letting it simmer and wasn't impressed. However, the finished product was amazing. Filling and delicious!

I didn't use the frozen stir-fry vegetable; instead I used two bell peppers and an onion. I also did two eggs per person however it would have been plenty filling with just one. Overall the recipe was really easy to make and my 5 year old ate it without complaint.
