The origin story of this popular sandwich begins with Iraqi Jews, who came to Israel in the 1940s and 1950s as refugees. On Shabbat, when no cooking is allowed, Iraqi Jews ate a cold meal of precooked fried eggplant, boiled potatoes, and hard-boiled eggs. Those essential building blocks – combined with other Israeli salads, dressings, and spices and stuffed into pita bread – have been transformed into the mighty sabich sandwich. Join me as I break down the story of secrets of a perfect Sabich sandwich.
