I love a board. Okay, fine, it’s 2019, we all love a board. That’s why they’re everywhere and not going away any time soon. They’re customizable, can be as quick and easy or laborious and involved as you choose, and they present sooooo beautifully.
This specific board is close to my heart because it’s a nod to my non-fish-eating family members. I wanted to find a dish that wouldn’t feel like it was just for the people who don’t eat fish, and I wanted it to be special and b’kavodik.
Sabich is traditionally pareve and is made up of eggplant, hard-boiled egg, grated tomato, pickles, techinah, and amba. Of course, like the melting pot of cuisine that Israeli food is, every place customizes its sabich to its own taste. Some add Bulgarian cheese and wrap it in malawach, some forgo the dairy for a heartier chicken cutlet, and some plac-es add ground beef. However you do it, the flavors are intense, delicious, and present absolutely beautifully! Feel free to add, customize, or swap anything to make it your own.
