Vegetarian Eggplant Chickpea Fatteh is a classic Lebanese dish. It is made with a layer of baked or fried eggplant, a layer of cooked chickpeas, a layer of delicious garlic yogurt sauce, topped with crunchy toasted pita bread and roasted pine nuts. This vegetarian Eggplant Chickpea Fatteh dish works great as a meal prep recipe – it is a perfect dish to make ahead and put together later in minutes!
In the authentic version of this vegetarian chickpea eggplant Fatteh recipe, eggplants, pita bread and pine nuts are usually deep fried. But if you are looking for a healthier version, I suggest air frying the eggplants, pita bread and pine nuts, like I did. They will taste just the same, if not even better!
What is Fatteh?
The word “Fatteh” translates to “crumbs” in the Arabic language. In Fatteh, bread is toasted or fried and then broken up into small pieces, and that’s where the word Fatteh came from, at least that’s what I think. There are different varieties of Fatteh recipes, but today I’m sharing my way of making this simple Eggplant and chickpeas Fatteh.
