Sabich is a popular Israeli sandwich based on what Iraqi Jews ate on Sabbath morning, featuring fried eggplant, boiled potato, and hard-boiled egg. Instead of serving the ingredients on a tray, as was traditional, sabich stuffs everything in a pita.

  2. Spread the hummus evenly in each pita bread
  3. Stuff the pitas with the slices of fried eggplants and the boiled eggs.
  4. Spoon over some of the Israeli salad, drizzle the tahini and amba over the pitas, and serve.
