  1. In a large heavy pot or Dutch oven (or traditional tagine if you have one), heat olive oil over medium heat until just warm. Add onions and increase heat to medium-high. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring regularly so they don’t burn.
  2. Add garlic and prepared vegetables. Add spices and season with salt to taste. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. Add tomatoes, apricot and broth and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer for another 20 to 25 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  5. Reduce heat to low, add cod and chickpeas and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in lemon juice and fresh parsley. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  7. Transfer to serving bowls and top each with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Serve with your favorite bread, couscous or rice.
