with Shaved Artichoke Salad and Tahini Yogurt
One of the best parts about a gyro is the combination of flavors and textures. Crispy seitan, dusted with baharat spice, is paired with crunchy cucumber and a smooth vegan tahini yogurt sauce. Baharat spice is a traditional Middle Eastern blend with allspice, cloves, and cumin. It brings an authentic, warm flavor to the dish but use as little or as much as you’d like depending on your affinity to spice. Wrap everything up in warm pita and enjoy!

Rinse and dry all produce. Halve the lemon. Chop the parsley leaves. Slice the tomato. Thinly slice the cucumber.
Thinly slice the artichoke hearts– careful, they can be slippery! Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, add the sliced artichokes and cook until browned in places, about 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool slightly, then add to a medium bowl along with the parsley, juice from half the lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss well to combine.
Cut the Sweet Earth Seitan in half to make slices. Pour the potato starch onto a plate and dust each piece of seitan, shaking off any excess. Return the large skillet to medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, add the seitan, sprinkle with salt, and cook until crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until crisp, another 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle seitan with the baharat spice.
In a small bowl mix together the Kite Hill vegan yogurt, cumin, tahini, 1 tbsp of lemon juice from the remaining half, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Place the whole wheat pita in the toaster or microwave to warm. You can also set the oven to broil on low and broil until warm.
Place the crispy Sweet Earth Seitan onto the warmed pitas and top with the shaved artichoke salad, sliced tomatoes, and cucumbers. Drizzle with the tahini yogurt sauce. Serve any additional salad and vegetables on the side.
