Gyro Healthy Way

A gyro is a greek dish, made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. In this recipe, I am making it vegetarian. It gives more options to people who really wants to try this dish out but don’t want to have meat.


Serves 2

  • 1 zucchini squash
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup cucumbers peeled and chopped

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dry or fresh mint
  • 1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon


  1. Make the dressing for the vegetables ready first. Combine the cumin, chili powder, salt, oregano and olive oil altogether and mix well.
  2. Bake the veggies for about 7 to 10 minutes
  3. For the sauce put the greek yogurt, water, garlic, mint, lemon in a blender, and blend well
  4. Serve the veggies in a whole wheat bread pita and add the sauce to it.
  5. Serve and enjoy 🙂
