The Gentle Chef and bought his cookbook.
The first recipe I made was the gyro seitan roast and it was delicious. The first time I enjoyed it, I made a traditional gyro on a pita but it kept falling part so when I decided to eat it again, I came up with a fabulous idea - all the yummy components of a gyro sandwich on a salad!
You'll need to get your hands on Skye's cookbook for the gyro seitan recipe. If I can't find a recipe online already, I won't give it out. These folks need to sell their cookbooks!
Shelly's Gyro Salad
You'll need some of Skye's gyro roast, sliced and pan fried in a little olive oil until it's warm and slightly crispy. Cut into bite sized pieces.
Note: if you don't want to make your own, I suppose a commercial seitan would work as well here. You can try and locate some greek type seasoning to jazz it up.
tomatoes (I recommend campari)
kalamata olives, pitted and cut in half
red onion, sliced
Cut a pita into small squares. Melt a tablespoon of Earth Balance (or Skye's Better Butter) in a fry pan, add the pita squares and toss to coat, Cook until they are lightly brown. Sprinkle the croutons with a couple pinches of garlic powder and nutritional yeast to taste.
Note: Skye has a recipe for sauce in his cookbook and even a recipe for sour cream!
1/2 cup Tofutti Sour Cream* (or similar)
* you can use Vegenaise here but the result is a thinner dressing.
1/2 fresh cucumber, peeled and grated
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dill
1/4 tsp salt
couple pinches nutritional yeast
pinch onion powder
pinch garlic powder
pinch or two of sugar
Mix together until it tastes good!
