Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the leeks, garlic, oregano, black pepper, curry powder, allspice, and aminos and sautÃ© over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper, celery and tomatoes and continue to sautÃ© for 2 or 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the stock and simmer, covered for up to 1/2 hour.
Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add the carrots and cauliflower and blanch for 2 minutes, or lightly steam in a steamer. Drain the vegetables and set aside. In the same large pot, heat the vegetable stock and the zucchini, and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes. Add the carrots and cauliflower, the spinach, and the chili sauce. Heat just to the boiling point, add the broccoli, and stir. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli. Garnish with toasted pine nuts, freshly chopped dill, and feta cheese. Serve over pasta, couscous, grains, or as a side dish stew.
Variation: Bake four 4-ounce boneless chicken breasts or four 4-ounce freshwater bass fillets in the sauce and serve vegetables on the side.
