Most of the recipes I create are born out of my dreams.

Ingredients: suitable for 4 units
For the sambusac dough:
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup tahini
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1 cup maple syrup
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
For the Sauce:
- 100g tomato paste (About 4 tablespoons)
- 4 tablespoons milk non-dairy / regular / water
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder (Not a must)
- ½ teaspoon dried / fresh oregano (Not a must)
I recommend making the sauce by yourselves and not using a store-bought sauce, a store-bought sauce may moisten the dough too much.
Options for add-ins: yellow cheese / grated mozzarella, green / black olives, onions, tuna, sun-dried tomatoes, harissa, pesto, corn and more. I do not recommend using wet add-ins or a liquid sauce like fresh tomato or tomato that isn’t a paste, as they may moistern the dough.
It is important to read all steps of preparation from beginning to end before you start making the dish
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) on turbo mode.
- Take the bottom part of a springform pan 10.2” (26cm) diameter, or can also use 9.4” (24cm) or 11” (28cm), place the bottom of the springform pan on a standard baking pan lined with parchment paper and put another parchment paper on top top (Have a sneak peek at the pictures below).
- We will start with making the dough: in a bowl put all of the sauce ingredients, tomato paste, milk, salt, garlic powder and oregano and mix well until forming a thick and smooth sauce.
- Arrange the grated cheese and all the add-ins we chose in saucers and put them aside until it’s time to make the sambusac.
- Move on to making the dough mixture: put all the mixture ingredients in the blender, the eggs, tahini, olive oil, maple syrup, salt and baking powder and grind well until forming a fluffy and uniform mixture. I recommend grinding the mixture in the blender, the mixture will turn out more fluffy and uniform this way, if you don’t have a blender mix very well using a bowl and a beater.
- Oil teh top parchment paper that is on top of the springform bottom and using a soup scooper or straight out of the blender pour the mixture on the parchment paper and smear it evenly on the entire pan. Sprinkle a layer of sesame and put in the oven for initial baking of 5-7 minutes. Keep ¼ cup of mixture aside for making the sambusac.
- Take out of the oven and continue to bake the rest of the mixture until creating four circles of baked dough.
- Begin with making the sambusac: flip the dough that came out of the oven on a plate and remove the parchment paper.
- Spread in the center of the dough the tomato sauce we made and add the cheese and add-ins that we chose.
- Spread on the brim of the baked dough a little of the dough mixture that we kept aside and fold the dough three times inwards in a triangular shape (Have a sneak peek at the picture).
- Place our sambuscs on the baking pan, spray them with a little olive oil and put in the oven for a second baking of 8-10 minutes until they are slightly browned, and beautiful.
cut fresh vegetables, serve at the center of the table and eat with pleasure 🙂
A little extra from me:
- Can be kept in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I recommend heating in the oven or in a panini press (Can also use a pan with a lid).
- If you do not have a springform bottom part, you can put the dough mixture in the oven when it’s smeared on the baking paper in the shape of a square for the initial baking, and after this bake, cut a circle out of the dough.
- Tahini can be substituted for almond butter for those who don’t like the taste of tahini as much.
- The sambusac can be made without the maple syrup, but I do recommend using it.
- In my sambusak I added pitted black olives and grated yellow cheese.
