Sauteed Vegetable Gyros

By Angie McGowan |

As a teenager my husband worked as a stage-hand in a night club where they use to give them one meal voucher a night. And the meal was for a gyro. He use to live off of them when he was working at the night club. Later one, we use to go out for gyros to a local Greek restaurant when I was working full-time. Although I have always loved gyros, I never really liked the meat, I just like alot of vegetables. Occasionally I use to order them with a little shredded roasted chicken, but it’s the vegetables I really love. Having all those vegetables nicely sauteed with herbs in one convenient little sandwich is so delicious.

I don’t know why I haven’t made these sooner at home. They were so easy. I also made some tzatziki sauce to go along side. The recipe here makes alot of sauce, so you’ll have plenty to use as a vegetable dip for lunches and snacks.

    Ooooo, I love gyros but the meat always sends me running to the closest restroom! ;) We try to eat mostly vegetarian at home and these look amazing! I am going to add them to our dinner menu this week! I’m a little scared of making the sauce, I might have to buy one already made – I don’t trust myself. I LOVE all the veggies in this!
