Vegan gyros

These gyros are one of my favorite recipes to make when I have vegan “meat” on hand. They are simple, savory, yet light because of the veggies and herbs I’ve added.

Serves: 1


  • 1 pita, sliced in half and lightly toasted.
  • 1/2 lb of light life vegan ground “meat” (or use any vegan ground “meat”).
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano.
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil.
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley.
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme.
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin.
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander.
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder.
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder.

For stuffing the pita:

  • Red bell pepper, chopped.
  • Fresh dill.
  • Chopped black olives.
  • Bib lettuce.
  • Vegan Tzatziki sauce.


Heat some oil in a pan at medium high heat. Mix together the vegan ground “meat”, all the dried herbs, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Roll into 5-6 balls and add to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes flipping over often. When fully cooked remove from the heat. Fill the pita halves with the bell pepper, dill, olives, lettuce, and vegan tzatziki. Fill with 2-3 of the “meat” gyros. Enjoy!
