Easy Vegan Gyros Wraps
My Vegan Gyros is delicious and incredibly easy to make. Enjoy as a flatbread wrap for a plant-based spin on this Greek classic.
Servings: 3 wraps Print Recipe
For the vegan gyros:
- 1 pound seitan, thinly shaved
- ½ red onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp marjoram
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- 3-4 pitas or flatbreads
- greens of choice, arugula, spinach, etc.
- red onion, thinly sliced
- tomatoes, thinly sliced
- tzatziki, (use a tzatziki made with vegan Greek yogurt to keep these wraps vegan)
- Smoky Sweet Tahini Sauce, optional, but great for dipping. (See notes for my recipe.)
Make the gyros
In a medium-sized skillet, cook the onion, garlic and ¼ tsp salt over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. The onion will turn translucent and begin to brown.
Now turn the heat to low, and cook the onion and garlic for an additional 5 minutes.
Add the seitan and seasonings
Turn the heat back up to medium-high, and add the seitan, remaining ¼ tsp salt, marjoram, and oregano. Cook until the seitan is slightly browned, about 5-7 minutes.
Vegan gyros is done!
Compile the wrap
Take a pita or flatbread, and spread a generous amount of tzatziki over the bread.
Layer some greens on top (I prefer arugula), followed by the vegan gyros.
Top with thinly sliced tomato and red onion.
This gyros recipe is vegan. Keep the wrap vegan by using a vegan tzatziki. This recipe makes enough vegan gyros for 3-4 pita/flatbread wraps, and can easily be doubled. You can find my Smoky Sweet Tahini recipe here.
