Ingredients to make vegan gyros

5 cups oyster mushrooms

1/2 cup Tragano Greek Organics Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 garlic bulbs cut in half

2 tsps Sparoza - Greek Shepherd’s Souvlaki & BBQ mix

2 tsps cumin

2 tsps thyme

1 tsp oregano

2 tsps soy sauce

Fresh pepper and salt

How to prepare vegan gyros

Split all the ingredients in half and cook in two batches, following the instructions below. That way the mushrooms will stay nice & crispy.

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!
