These vegan gyro rolls are the perfect weekday lunch or weekend meal option. Inspired by the Indian Seekh kabab, the vegan gyro meat is a perfectly spiced filling for the pita rolls or even subs. And, I used SWEET EARTH® Awesome Grounds for making this amazing vegan gyro kabobs.

Sauté them with mushrooms and add some oriental seasonings and sauces for a perfect plant-powered lettuce wrap. Or, just make no-meat meatballs and simmer them in a chunky marinara before serving with spaghetti. If you fall for spicy street food, then I have this delicious vegan gyro recipe for you.

Vegan seekh kabab

My vegan gyro is partly inspired from an Indian kabab roll and traditional Greek gyros. It has spicy Seekh kabob inspired patties, but all Greek toppings. There is pita bread, vegan tzatziki, cucumber and tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro.
