At long last. I remembered to take a picture of one of you with the egg and eggplant sandwich. Now I can post the nutritionals. Sorry it took so long. Not as though we sell a couple hundred of these each day or anything…
The egg and eggplant is a middle eastern sandwich. As with most of our middle eastern inspired stuff I get confused when trying to research exactly where things are from/ when they originated. Maybe Iraqi Jews? It’s often called Sabich. You all know it as “Egg and Eggplant,” or for our regulars, “Egg and Egg.”
I first had this sandwich in NYC where a few of the hummus shops offer it in various forms. Rolando and I played with our own version trying different combinations before settling in on the current version. It does a good job of using some of the same great stuff that we prepare for the Chickpea Fritter, but giving it a different taste profile.
So what’s in it?
Pita, hummus (tahini, lemon juice, garlic, chickpeas, tiny bit of baking soda, salt), eggplant, cucumber tomato salad (cucumbers, tomatoes, salt, lemon juice, spices), hard boiled Chip In Farm egg, tahini (tahini, lemon juice, salt, water).
