How to make vegan gyro meat (also gluten-free and soy-free!) with a tasty combination of mushrooms, aromatics, and homemade seasoning. Once cooked, serve up the tasty gyros 'meat' with salad vegetables, and homemade tzatziki, all wrapped up in pita bread!
You can watch the video in the post for visual instructions.Heat the olive oil in a skillet and sauté the onion and mushrooms for 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and gyro seasoning and fry for a further one minute.
Next, add the vegetable broth, tomato paste and stir to combine. Also, stir in the soy sauce, maple syrup, and vinegar.
Let the mixture simmer for a few more minutes, then turn off the heat.
Top a pita bread with the vegan gyro mixture, with salad veggies of choice (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber...), tzatziki, and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
Mushrooms: You can use portobello mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, etc. I used a dried mushroom mixture (shiitake, white button mushrooms...) which I rehydrated.
I used homemade gluten-free pita bread, tzatziki, and gyro seasoning (recipe below), but you can use store-bought bread, gyro seasoning, and your favorite sauce/dip.
