Seitan Gyros

Seitan Gyros

Gyros were never my favorite.  I couldn’t stomach the fact that they are traditionally made with lamb.  🙁  So when John suggested Seitan Gyros, I didn’t have an excuse.  Lucky for me they were delicious and super easy.  This is probably one of our best and easiest recipes; you don’t even need a rotisserie; the marinade and browning perfectly flavor the seitan.  The seitan itself is delicious!  Please take some photos and share them with us on Instagram or Facebook @veginspired, #veginspiredfoodie and let us know what you think of these easy, vegan Seitan Gyros.
