Recently (in fact ALWAYS) I have been craving gyro. In basic terms, a gyro is meat in pita bread.
And it is DELICIOUS.
For many of my veggie friends however, gyro is not usually something that we have in common. But thanks to my dear friend Krystina over at Kouzounas Kitchen, now there is VEGETARIAN gyro for us all to enjoy!
For the veggies amongst you I have reposted Krystina’s recipe below and you can check it out for yourself on her blog here.
