DIRECTIONS

  • To make gyro "meat" cut tempeh into thin strips 1/2 - 1.5 cm in thickness works well.
  • Next make tempeh marinade with all ingredients listed under "Gyro Tempeh".
  • Pour the marinade over the tempeh, make sure all surfaces are covered and place in fridge to marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Next, make Tzatziki- combine all ingredients listed under Tzatziki. Stir well and also place in fridge to sit for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • When you are ready to eat, set the Tzatziki out to warm slightly while you cook the tempeh.
  • Heat a large skillet with 3-4 tbsp olive oil and heat over medium, once heated place tempeh strips in and let them cook until each side is golden brown.
  • Remove tempeh from pan, and one at a time heat the pitas over medium heat until warmed on each side.
  • Then layer your gyro (pita, tzatziki and tempeh) as you choose with lettuce, and/or tomato if you like.
