A lot of people seem to be under the impression that being a vegetarian is totally restrictive and boring and all about the things you can’t eat. Untrue! Eating meatless opens up so many possibilities! Take gyros for example. If you’re having standard gyros, your possibilities are meat and meat. You are bound by tradition. But not here. We can break rules.
Before grilling the veggies, it’s good to marinate them in a tangy lemon-olive oil sauce. The veggies will soak up the sauce pretty quickly, so you can heat up your grill while they’re marinating. We used an indoor grill that has ridges on it instead of grates so there’s no need to worry about the veggies falling through, but if you’re using an outdoor grill, you’ll want to use a vegetable basket. They’ll only take a few minutes to cook, although the exact time will vary depending on the type of grill you use.
Throw the pita bread on the grill after the veggies are done to warm it up a little bit so it’s easily bendable. Pile the veggies on the bread, then top it with chopped tomatoes and romaine lettuce, and a drizzle of tzatziki or Creamy Cucumber Dill Sauce. Don’t forget to wrap the bottom half of your Grilled Veggie Gyros with foil for that authentic restaurant-style experience—and also because these gyros are a little bit messy.Print this recipe
If you don’t have an indoor grill, you can use a grill pan or an outdoor grill for the veggies. If you’re using an outdoor grill, use a basket so the veggies don’t fall through the grates!
