Greek Gyros

My husband and I are both big fans of Greek flavors and I made these sort of gyro wraps for dinner the other night. They were a big hit and I’ve since made them again!

The thing that is tricky is that traditional tzaziki isn’t vegan, so I make my own using non-dairy yogurt (it’s really simple).

Then all you need are your preferred fixings and some flatbread, like pitas or naan. We prefer naan because it is really filling and a bit more fluffy than pita, but both work great!

For the meat, I use meatless ground (Gardein has a good one that is frozen).

This recipe is good for dinner for two, but just multiply it to serve more people.

Vegan Gyros

Ingredients:

About 1/4 onion, thinly sliced

1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 cups lettuce, shredded or chopped

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

7-8 black olives, sliced in half

1 1/2 cup meatless ground

Lamb seasoning to taste (I use the lamb seasoning from Penzey’s, but other Greek seasoning will work)

Olive oil

Naan (make sure it is vegan because a lot of naan contains buttermilk)

Directions:

Toss the lettuce with balsamic vinegar.

Heat pan on medium heat with some olive oil. Add meatless ground and desired lamb/Greek seasoning. Cook until it gets color and is heated through, probably about 6-7 minutes.

Warm naan using the stovetop, oven, or microwave.

Add meatless ground to the naan or pita, then stuff with lettuce, bell pepper, onions, and olives. Top with tzaziki and enjoy!

Tzaziki:

I cup dairy-free yogurt (I use coyo coconut yogurt)

1/2 cucumber, diced

1/4 cup red onion, diced

Squeeze lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced

Small bunch dill, chopped

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy!

Hopefully you enjoy this as much as we did! It’s becoming a pretty common dinner in my house because it is really filling and delicious.
