Gyro

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Pomegranate infused seitan with roasted zucchini, onion, tzatziki, and zhoug sauce.

Short History: The precursor to Gyros – the doner kebab – was developed in Bursa during the 19th century and brought to Athens after World War II. It was brought there by immigrants from Anatolia and the Middle East. A Greek variation was developed and called gyros! By 1970, they were a very popular fast food in Athens, and in Chicago and New York! The Garlics – John and Margaret Garlic – created the first assembly line to produce Gyros in Chicago in the early 1970’s. They later sold their company to Gyros, Inc. This version of the Gyro from The Vegan Taste will provide you with antioxidants, B vitamins, phosphorus, calcium, and more!

Reheating Instructions: Warm the filling over medium-high. Toast the pita if you like.
