This recipe is all about the bread or pide ekmek. When I lived on the west side of Amsterdam you had a Turkish bakery on just about every street corner. They sold all kind of breads from regular Turkish pide bread to Uzun pide which is a long pide bread, pide with ground beef and all sorts of buns.
When I was in elementary school we had a number of Turkish children in my class. They would always share the most delicious breads with us. I can still remember how good these tasted, baked by the mommas. On birthday parties we would eat things I never had before. One dish even more delicious than the other. Turkish pide bread was always served.
When Turkish bread became widely available we would buy it in the store and eat them on the weekend. With bell pepper and cheese there was nothing more you need. Now I also make it myself.
Turkish bread ingredients
To make these Turkish pide sandwiches you need a couple of ingredients that you can make or buy. I made them but if you want to keep it simple just buy in the store. You need:
- Pide bread (1 loaf or 2 small pide buns)
- Sun dried tomatoes
- Arugula lettuce
- Bell pepper
How to make Turkish bread sandwiches
Pide is a great soft and fluffy bread. Instead of using a big bread in this recipe I made smaller pide bread buns. It is really very easy to make Turkish pide bread buns yourself. Instead of making one big loaf of bread divide the dough into four. Roll the dough into four equal size buns and bake them the same way as you would the loaf.
If you have store bough pide bread sprinkle it with water and bake them in the oven at 450℉/225℃ for 5 minutes. Let them cool slightly and cut in half.
Now assemble the pide sandwich. This recipe requires hummus and homemade hummus is so delicious. Made with chickpeas and a good foodprocessor you can make it while the bread is in the oven. I love how the garlic add a sharpness to the soft chickpeas as it combines into hummus.
Take a couple of tablespoons of hummus and spread it on the bread. Then add arugula lettuce on top of the hummus. Slice an avocado into thin slices. Put 3 to 4 slices of avocado on top of the arugula.
Slice the bell pepper in super thin slices a la julienne and put the slices on the avocado. To finish this sandwich top it off with sun dried tomatoes and you are ready to serve.
More sandwich ingredient options
This recipe has a great bite but there are more ingredients that you can use on your pide sandwich, like:
- Rustic tapenade – either made with olives or tomato tapenade is great on this sandwich. Use it as a substitute for the hummus or on top of the hummus.
- Olives – slice the olives ultra thin and sprinkle on top of the hummus
- Guacamole – you just can’t go wrong with this healthy guacamole especially with hummus and tomatoes
- Sliced pickles – a common ingredient to use here in the Netherlands. Long sliced pickle is called Amsterdammers after my home town.
