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
- yogurt sauce
- 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.
