Veggie Gyros With Tzatziki Sauce

Veggie Gyros With Tzatziki Sauce

Veggie Gyros 🥙🥙🥙

Why have fries on “the side” when you can stuff them in a pita and have it as your main. For this recipe, I made a zesty gyro seasoning (pantry friendly) & mixed it with some olive oil & lemon, poured it on some spuds & chickpeas, roasted it & there you go.

It’s that easy…. and let’s not forget to smother the gyros with all the Tzatziki 😂💗
