Ingredients

  • 1 cup Middle Eastern salad (recipe)
  • 2 tablespoon Italian parsley (chopped)
  • ¼ cup Tahini Sauce (recipe)
  • 1 large eggplant
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil (if eggplant is baked) (more, if frying)
  • 4 pita bread or flatbread (recipe)
  • 8 slices pickled mango (Amba) (recipe)

Instructions

  • Prepare Middle Eastern Salad (Zalata) and mix in chopped parsley. Next, prepare the Tahini Sauce. Set both aside until needed.
  • Slice the eggplant into ¼"-½" slices and sprinkle with salt on both sides. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the eggplant to sweat out its bitterness. After 15 minutes, pat dry.
  • Meanwhile, add eggs to a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat. Cover saucepan for 12 minutes. Rinse the eggs with cold water, then peel and slice them.
  • Sprinkle the sliced eggplant with black pepper and fry in olive oil on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
  • For a healthier option, brush the eggplant slices with oil and season with black pepper. Arrange on a parchment-lined tray and bake in a 450-degree F oven for 30 minutes. Flip halfway through.

Assemble the Sandwich

  • Gather all your ingredients and layer your sandwich. Warm pita bread over a flame or in a pan. Add ¼ of the fried eggplant in the center of each pita. Layer with sliced boiled eggs, pickled mangos, and salad. Finally, drizzle with Tahini Sauce.

Notes

  • The nutrition information is for one sandwich with roasted eggplant, without Falafel.
  • Sometimes the eggplant in a Sabich Sandwich is battered before being fried. To do that, dip eggplant in flour then in beaten eggs, and finally in seasoned breadcrumbs before frying.
  • Another popular ingredient that can be added to a Sabich sandwich is Hummus. Spread hummus on the pita bread before layering the other ingredients.
  • Falafel can also be added to Sabich Sandwiches. Fry or air fry the Falafel last before building your Sabich Sandwich so that the falafel are crunchy.
