Today we have gyros with two minor changes: First, we don’t serve flatbread or pita bread with them. On the other hand, this variation is completely vegan. Yes, you read that right, we make a bowl of vegan gyros. The clean salad is tasty and spicy, our gyros includes seitan and there are pickled vegetables. Everything is covered with a creamy “yogurt” dressing based on tzatziki. However, we will leave out the pumpkin, because it is already part of the vegan gyros bowl. We’re also cutting back a bit on garlic. Therefore, the plate is suitable for university or even office use.
By the way, we have already prepared the Greek classic in pita bread as vegan gyros. If you want a little more pizazz, replace the traditional tzatziki (as in traditional vegan yogurt) with this avocado version. It goes especially well with a bowl of vegan gyros. But we looked further into Greek cuisine and found and wrote down the following delicious dishes for you:
We love such Mediterranean delicacies not only on vacation, but especially at home. However, Mediterranean cuisine does not stop in Greece. This is what one of our cookbooks of the week suggests: “80 Must-Try Mediterranean Classics”. There are also countries on the Mediterranean Sea like Lebanon, Libya and Israel. Author Danny Ambrosi shows how diverse the dishes in this episode are with his collection of recipes. Get motivated!
