Perfect as a snack or meal, this Vegan Eggplant Gyros will definitely be your go-to recipe should your friends come by at your place for a chat!
- 2 eggplants, cubed (about 4 cups uncooked, it will shrink down significantly when cooked)
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 2 tbsp. za'atar
- 1 tsp. oregano salt/pepper
- 1 large tomato, sliced
- ½ cup red onions, very thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- ½ cup cucumber, thinly sliced
- ⅓ cup parsley, chopped
- 4 pita flatbreads
- ⅓ cup hummus
- 1 large lemon, juiced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. dried dill
- Place the eggplant in a large bowl and rub with olive oil, za'atar seasoning and oregano until well coated.
- You can either roast or use the skillet to cook, both work! If you are doubling the recipe, then I recommend roasting.
- To roast: Place the eggplant in a baking dish and roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until very soft.
- To saute: heat a bit more oil in a large cast iron skillet (or other non-stick skillet) over medium heat. Add eggplant and cook for 10-15 minutes until very tender.
- Combine the very thinly sliced onion and vinegar in a bowl. Let sit while you cook the eggplant and make the hummus sauce. Drain before serving.
- Combine the ingredients for the sauce: hummus, lemon juice, garlic, dill and a pinch salt/pepper. Set aside.
- Make the gyros: pile the onions, cucumber, tomato, cucumber and cooked eggplant on the flatbreads. Drizzle with hummus sauce and eat immediately.
