Mmmm Gyros

This one got a big thumbs up from everybody in the Llama family, the Llama even ate quite a bit of seitan, which is pretty spectacular since he usually doesn’t like 'meats' and has refused just basic seitan on several occasions.

seitan, sliced thinly (~ 1/2 a loaf made from this recipe)

2 cloves garlic
1 sm onion

1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
salt & pepper
(I just threw everything into the spice grinder and let it go)

sauté the onions until translucent, add the garlic and cook a little longer. Add the seitan and spices and cook until the seitan is staring to crisp around the edges and the spices are fragrant.



1/2 cucumber, peeled, grated and drained
1 C Greek yogurt
1 tsp dill
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper

combine everything and let sit several hours to meld.

This makes A LOT of Tzatziki, but that's ok, because it is super yummy, the Llama loves Greek yogurt and cucumbers, and eats this up like crazy.

Layer everything on the naan, fold, and eat!
