In a mixing bowl, combine lamb, egg white and spice mixture and mix well. When all the ingredients are combined, stuff olives with meat mixture. In a large saucepan, heat oil. Sear olives, meat side down, in the hot oil. Remove from pan and set aside. Add onions to the pan, and sweat until translucent. Add tomato paste, harissa, tomato puree, water and white beans, and bring it to a boil. When it reaches a boil, turn down the heat and simmer slowly until beans are tender, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Add additional water if needed. Add seared stuffed olives and cook for 15 minutes more. Add pickled vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve in a bowl, accompanied by a pita or baguette.
