1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
16 ounces seitan, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 large cucumber, peeled
1/3 cup vegan ranch or creamy dill dressing, or more as needed
8 pita breads (preferably whole grain), regular or pocketless
1 1/2 cups thinly shredded dark green lettuce
3 medium plum tomatoes, thinly sliced, or more as needed
Makes 8 Servings (1 Gyro Each)
1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet. Add the onion and sautÃ© over medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to sautÃ© until both are just beginning to turn golden.
2. Add the seitan, oregano, and cumin. Raise the heat to medium and continue to sautÃ© until the seitan is golden and crisp on most sides, then remove from the heat.
3. Quarter the cucumber lengthwise, cut away seeds if watery, and slice. In a small bowl, stir together the cucumber and dressing.
4. To assemble, place 1 or 2 pitas on individual serving plates. Arrange a little lettuce over each pita, followed by the seitan, and the cucumber mixture. Arrange 3 slices or so of tomato down the center of each. Have everyone fold the pitas and eat out of hand.
