Herby Chick’n Gyros

FINALLY- the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds, birds are chirping, and spring flowers are blooming. This calls for a deviation from your cozy winter menu- give these delicious Herby Tofurky Chick’n Gyros a try! Our Tofurky Lightly Seasoned Chick’n gets a bath in shawarma inspired seasonings, then gets snuggled up in steamy toasted pita with creamy vegan tzatziki and a fresh, juicy herb and tomato salad- it’s zingy and zippy and a breath of fresh air after all those soups and stews. Happy spring, friends, we made it! Makes 4 servings

what you’ll need:

4 large store-bought pita bread
2 packages Tofurky Lightly Seasoned Chick’n
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 small bunch parsley leaves, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 small bunch mint leaves, chopped (about ¼ cup)
¼ cup chopped chives
1 cup vegan tzatziki

how to make:

1. In a large dry skillet over medium heat, toast pita on both sides then wrap in a towel to keep warm and soft.

2. In the same skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon oil. Sauté chick’n, salt, cumin, paprika, coriander, and garlic until fragrant and golden, about 3-5 minutes.

3. In a mixing bowl, add lettuce, tomato, red onion, parsley, mint, and chives. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil and lemon juice plus a pinch of salt, then toss to combine.

4. Top each warm pita with prepared chick’n, veggies, and a hefty drizzle of tzatziki sauce.
