Jackfruit Gyros (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Gyros are a Greek dish that typically aren’t vegetarian-friendly. I’m taking all the flavors you would come to expect from a gyro and packing it into the versatile ingredient that is jackfruit.

olive oil garlic cloves tomato dried oregano garlic powder dried thyme cinnamon smoked paprika chili powder nutmeg sea salt vegetable broth or water lemon juice young jackfruit pitas or flatbread romaine lettuce tomato red onion tzatziki 


Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the olive oil and garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes.

Add the tomato paste, oregano, garlic powder, thyme, cinnamon, smoked paprika, chili powder, nutmeg, and salt. Stir and cook for 2 minutes longer.

Add the vegetable broth, lemon juice, and jack-fruit. Stir and then let simmer for 10 minutes.

When the jackfruit is done simmering, transfer to a baking sheet. Using the back of a fork, break the jackfruit up a bit into shreds. Bake for 15 minutes.

Divide the jackfruit among the pitas or flatbread.  Top with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a dollop of tzatziki before serving.
