If you haven’t tried a sabich sandwich you are in for a treat.
A sabich or sabih sandwich is an Israeli sandwich made by stuffing pita with fried eggplant and hard boiled eggs. Traditionally the sandwich also has potatoes, pickles, tahini sauce, hummus, cabbage and Israeli Amba sauce.
I was introduced to sabich a few years ago when I was 110 months pregnant. The husband is a manager-type engineer-y person and we move where the work takes us. When I was full to the brim with infant and close to popping, the job took the husband in to the city – about one and a half hours from home in peak traffic. Given my impending poppage, our little unit; me, the husband, the belly and our two beautiful senior canines moved in to town. We found a small dog-friendly house in an area with a large Orthodox Jewish community.
Here, I began my affair with the sabich sandwich.
