3. Portobello Gyros with Hemp Seed Tzatziki
When I created a Raw Hemp Seed Tzatziki last week, I knew I needed to make the perfect vegan gyro to go with it. Thus, these Portobello Gyros were born. I’m a big fan of using mushrooms or other vegetables in place of meat in most situations. As much as I love the taste of vegan meat substitutes, they are often quite processed and a bit hard to digest. I much prefer fresh, whole foods like these meaty, delicious Portobellos Gyros!
4. Roasted Chickpea Gyros
After discovering and subsequently eating far too many roasted chickpeas yesterday, I wanted to find a way to make these flavor bombs into an actual, sustainable meal. And at this point, “meal” really means anything that doesn’t involve just eating a bowl full of roasted chickpeas. I suppose as I get closer and closer to moving and really begin whittling away at my pantry stock, I’ll have to become more lenient in what I consider a “meal”…but for now, I can still justify buying some fresh veggies and flatbreads to make these vegetarian Roasted Chickpea Gyros!
5. Greek Chicken Gyros
Isn’t Greek food amazing? I’ve never been a huge fan until pretty much the last year. I live in the midwest and have temporarily moved to the East coast and there is SO much more Mediterranean food here than where I’m from. We had some delicious gyros last week at a restaurant so it inspired me to create some at home.

Often people think that gyros are made with ground meat, but if you ever try it, you’ll see it’s made of little chunks of well-seasoned pork (occasionally chicken too).
I haven’t got a vertical rotisserie at home, so instead, I cook a rolled shoulder of pork in a dutch oven with some stock, salt, herbs, and spices.
14. 20-Minute Greek Gyros

The marinade is made with yogurt, lemon, garlic, and oregano – classic Greek ingredients that infuse the chicken with flavor AND tenderizes it.
