The Absolute Best Homemade Sabich!

I first tasted sabich when I was living in Israel, and it quickly became one of my favorite dishes. A traditional Israeli breakfast sandwich, sabich is made with pita bread stuffed with eggplant, hard-boiled eggs, hummus, tahini sauce, and salad. It’s a filling and satisfying meal that’s perfect for any time of day.

4 servings



  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons water, plus more as needed
  • 4 (8-inch) pita
  • 1/4 cup store-bought or homemade hummus
  • 4 medium eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
  • 1/4 cup store-bought or homemade sliced pickles


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt, cumin, and pepper. Add water as needed to thin out the sauce until it’s pourable but still slightly thick.
  • Slice each pita in half horizontally so you have 8 pita halves total. Spread each one with 1 tablespoon of hummus, then top with 2 or 3 slices of egg and 1 tablespoon of pickles. Drizzle with the tahini sauce and amba sauce (if using), then fold up each pita like a sandwich.
  • Place the pitas on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until warmed through and slightly crispy around the edges.
