Vegetarian Grilled Gyros Recipe

Gyros are traditional Greek sandwich/wrap that has toppings of grilled meat like lamb, beef or pork marinated in Greek seasoning. Usually a pita bread is used in making the gyros. A vegetarian version of gyros uses some delicious grilled veggies like zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms, aubergines smeared and drizzled with delicious Tzatziki sauce. I have used Tortillas since I could not make/get pita bread. To make traditional gyros, please use pita bread.

Serve Vegetarian Grilled Gyros with Hummus or Ginger Walnut Chutney for an evening snack or for party appetisers along with Baked Potato Thyme Rolls Recipe
