With a wet paper towel, wipe clean all the mushrooms, let them dry, and then tear them in thin strips with your hands.

Heat the olive oil in a pan and saute the mushrooms until they shrink up. Toss in the spices, lots of fresh pepper, and salt, and keep stirring until the mushrooms are cooked. Serve piping hot with toasted pita bread.

There you have it! The most delicious vegan gyros, just like regular Greek gyros, only guilt-free!
