Vegan Gyros (with Seitan and Homemade Tzatziki Sauce)

Vegan Gyros (with Seitan and Homemade Tzatziki Sauce)


June 30, 2020

It’s officially summertime and that means fresh tasting food. During summers in England, we used to pop round to a close friend’s house (she is Greek) and savour in all the delicious Greek food she would make for us. Souvlaki and gyros were my favourite and I could have happily eaten them all summer long!

I recently got the craving for gyros and decided to experiment in the kitchen for the perfect vegan alternative. Alas, I came up with a recipe that not only took me back to my childhood but has also been a top request of Eddie’s! It’s bloomin’ simple, quick, and will disappear before you can say “Opa!”

Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 5 minutes.

Ingredients for Tzatziki:

Ingredients for Gyro:

Steps:

  1. Grate cucumber over a clean dish towel. Wring over sink to get rid of as much water as possible.
  2. Add all tzatziki ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Adjust salt to your liking.
  3. Warm seitan up for about 5 minutes on a non-stick frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil.
  4. Pop pita in the oven for a couple of minutes to warm up.
  5. Whilst pita is warming up, chop veggies for layering inside pita.
  6. Start to layer the ingredients in whatever order you desire but just make sure to top with lots of tzatziki for optimal flavour!
  7. That’s it! You can store any leftover tzatziki in the fridge for a few days but it never usually lasts that long in my house. 🙂
