Saturday Sandwich 43: Sabich

The Sabich sandwich is a traditional sandwich eaten by Jews on the morning of Shabbat. Sabich is Hebrew for morning. As there is no coooking done on Shabbat, eggs and eggplants must be boiled and fried the day before in preparation.

I predict we'll enjoy this sandwich because we often have hummous in pitta breads for our lunch.

Here's a recipe if you want to try a Sabich yourself -->

 Chopping up cucumber and tomato ready for the salad part.

 Ready to assemble the Sabiches.

Holding the surprisingly hot toasted pitta with a cloth so I don't burn my hand.

We did like them! JD was pleased the sandwich was vegetarian but still really enjoyable since he usually feels a sandwich needs meat. I loved the combination of creamy boiled eggs and soft fried aubergine (I usually dislike aubergine too). Everything was a lovely texture with smoothness from the tahini and hummous but crunchiness from the cucumber and tomato salad.  The chili sauce was a nice kick too.

We've both had an awful cold for a few days and our taste buds aren't really back to normal so we'll likely try this again when we're firing on all cylinders. :D

Ratings: JD - 4, Emma - 3
