I discovered this with Pilpeled on the streets of Tel Aviv. He couldn’t believe that I’d never eaten Sabich and afterwards neither could I. A very healthy vegetarian option to all that meat out there… See the above interview in Time Out Tel Aviv where I bang on about it, and then check the recipe below...
Makes 4 sandwiches
4 large pitas
4 hard-boiled eggs (peeled and sliced)
2 large Aubergine (washed sliced 5cm tick)
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp paprika (smoked)
1 onion (finely chopped)
2 tomatoes, finely diced
1/2 cucumber, finely diced
Juice of 2 lemons
jar of hummus
jar of tahini
1 pack parsley (chopped)
Make a salad of the parsley, tomatoes, cucumber, and lemon juice.
Dust the Aubergine slices with paprika and fry in batches until browned.
Then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Lightly toast pitta and slit top.
Inside the pitta (with the back of a spoon) spread tahini on one side and Hummus on the other.
Fill with salad, egg, fried Aubergine and top with mango pickle.
Add salt + Pepper and squeeze of lemon juice.
