INSTRUCTIONS

1
Make the quick pickles
Preheat the oven to 300°F to warm the pita. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Add the cucumber to a small bowl and toss with the champagne vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
2
Prepare the toppings
Thinly slice the tomato. Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Pick the mint leaves. Thinly slice the seitan
3
Crisp the seitan
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced seitan and sprinkle with salt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until crisped in places, about 4 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle the crispy seitan with just 1 tsp berbere spice and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the yogurt, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to a small bowl. Mix the lemon yogurt well to combine. Place the pita in the oven or toaster to warm for 1 minute.
