Simple Sabich Recipe

For those who want to try sabich at home, the recipe below is very easy to make. For those who want to make their own amba, view this recipe here.

Pita (fresh and hot as possible) - 4
Eggplant - 1 medium sized
Hardboiled eggs (sliced) - 4
3 Tomatoes - diced
3 Cucumber - diced
1/2 Red Onion - diced
Juice of one Lemon
1/2 bunch Parsley - diced
Tahina - store bought
Hummus - store bought
Amba - store bought or from recipe above
Harissa - store bought
Canola oil - enough to cover thin eggplant slices by 1/2 inch

1. Slice the eggplant into thin slices, approximately 1/4 inch. Fry in canola or other vegetable oil until a dark golden color and pat dry with paper towels when done.
2. Dice your tomatoes, cucumber, onion and mix with the minced parsley. Add lemon, salt, pepper and mix together.
3. Spread hummus on the sides of the pita and place in one or two slices of eggplant and the slices of one egg.
4. Add a few spoonfuls of the salad (thinly sliced pickles can be added as well) and top with tahina, harissa, and amba as you like.
5. Enjoy on a relaxing Saturday morning as is traditional with Iraqi Jews.
