“We had this recipe as a side dish for grilled meat, instead of over rice. The original recipe says it serves 4 people, I guess they forgot to mention that those 4 people were GIANTS. I change the servings to 6-8 because it does make a lot.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. HEAT 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large saucepan. COOK the onions for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. ADD the red pepper, eggplant and zucchini and cook for 5 minutes, then add the potato, garlic and oregano and cook for 1 minute. ADD the tomatoes, stock, salt and pepper, stir well to combine and bring to a boil.
  3. REDUCE the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. WHILE the stew simmers, cook the rice. ADD the cooked, peeled fava beans, parsley and olives to the stew and cook, covered, for 10 minutes.
  5. REMOVE from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  6. SERVE over rice with crumbled feta cheese on top (alternatively serve with bulgur or crusty bread instead of rice).
