Seitan Gyros

Gyros were never my favorite.  I couldn’t stomach the fact that they are traditionally made with lamb.  🙁  So when the VegInspired Chef suggested Seitan Gyros, I didn’t have an excuse.  Lucky for me they were delicious and super easy.  This is probably one of our best and easiest recipes; you don’t even need a rotisserie, the marinade and browning flavors the seitan perfectly.  The seitan itself is delicious!  Please take some photos and share them with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter and let us know what you think of these easy, vegan Seitan Gyros.
