Sabich-Israeli Sandwich with Hummus Aubergine-vegan healthy and easy recipe

This delicious Israeli sandwich will blow you away! The combination of creamy Hummus, spicy eggplant slices, and chickpeas – all wrapped within a fluffy pita bread – is truly delicious. This kind of sandwich, called “Sabich”, comes from the Israeli cuisine and is a popular street food dish. While it is originally a breakfast sandwich, I would say you can also have it also for lunch or dinner – or maybe just all day long?

I think this is a perfect dish for dinner with friends. For those occasions I love food, which offers more flexibility in combining all the ingredients. This makes life so much easier for the host and guests a well, because everyone can create their own Sabich. Of course, you can extend the ingredients, especially when having guests. Here are some more ideas for other sandwich combinations:

  • fresh salad
  • eggs
  • falafel
  • yogurt sauce
  • tabouleh
  • avocado
  • pickled onions
  • grilled zucchini
  • Couscous Salad (find recipe for Couscous Salad in this blogpost)

You get the point: the table can be fully covered with different bowls and ingredients.

What’s also great about this dish, is that you can easily prepare it the day before. The eggplant will even get more flavor and are softer when letting them marinate overnight. Also the hummus can be prepared in advance as it will last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator. You can also prepare the spicy chickpeas, as they also last for several days in the fridge. So easy peacy 🙂

  5. When the eggplants are baked, bring soft slices to a little box. Layer the eggplant slices and put some marinade over each layer. Cover the eggplants and let it marinate for at least 2 hours. Best is to marinate them overnight. You can keep the eggplants for a couple of days in the fridge. With each day they become softer and more spicy.

  2. Mix chickpeas with oil, smoked paprika, cumin and salt & pepper.

  2. Fill Hummus in a glass/box and put in the fridge.

  2. Place Pita Bread on plates. Add hummus, eggplants and chickpeas on top.

Notes

You can roll the pita bread into a sandwich and eat as such. Or you can eat it all with a knife and fork. Both tastes equally good 🙂
