Veggie Gyro from Kouzounas Kitchen

Veggie Gyro from Kouzounas Kitchen

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

Vegetarian Gyro Pita Recipe Brought To You By Kouzounas Kitchen

Greek Lingo: ΠΙΤΑ ΓΥΡΟ: Pita Gyro:( YEE-ro) Not hero, not Jiro, and please not a girooo. Simply Yee-ro. Bravo now you no how to say it correctly.



  • 1 pita bread ( I am very picky with what bread I use, but today I used the brand Western Bagels Whole Wheat Pita Bread.
    If you would like to make your own pita head over to this link and check out my recipe. >>>
  • 1 zucchini- thin slices.
  • 1 large tomato- thin slices
  • 1/4 cup Feta cheese
  • 1 Pinch oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons Hummus Dip or Tzatiki Dip ( I made my own hummus. Follow the recipe here>>
  • 1 Lemon – Reserve the juice


Saute the zucchini in a pan with light olive oil until the zuchinni is golden brown on each side. Set aside.
Prepare the tomato, and dip.
Prepare the pita bread. Spread the dip over the pita, and layer with tomato, zucchini slices, feta cheese, and lemon juice. Sprinkle oregano over the top. Carefully fold the pita together, and if you need to wrap in parchment paper.
Kali Orexi!

    I love the confused look I get when I ask for a pitta without meat.even though I use my best Greek they usually check in English that I really want pitta, salad, and chips with no meat. X

    Hmmm, that looks delicious. I must admit I’m normally firmly in the world of the meat eater but Krystina has made this look very tempting in deed.
