Cook Time



For the Gyros ‘Meat’:

  • 2.6-ounces dried soya mince
  • 8.4-ounces boiling water with 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon mild chili powder (or hot if you like spice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil to fry

For the Tzatziki Ingredients:

  • 3.2-ounces soy yogurt (or other plant-based yoghurts)
  • 1-ounce cucumber – grated
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • Black pepper as desired

For the Flatbread:

  • 12.3-ounces plain flour
  • 11.4-ounces soy yogurt (or other plant-based yogurts)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Extra virgin olive oil to fry


For the Gyros ‘Meat’:

  1. Add the mince, water and stock to a saucepan, stir until thoroughly combined, then put on a low heat (mine was on 2 out of 6) on the hob for 15 minutes – make sure you stir regularly so it doesn’t stick
  2. After 15 minutes, transfer to a bowl and add all the seasonings (mix together separately before adding) and leave for 5 minutes to ‘infuse’
  3. Then, fry for about 5-10 minutes until the mince has crisped

For the Tzatziki:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl – nice and simple!

For the Flatbread:

  1. Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix/knead until a dough forms
  2. Then, split the dough into 4 balls
  3. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until about 1cm thick
  4. Heat up a little oil in a griddle pan, then fry the dough for about 3 minutes each side until golden

For the Assembly:

  1. Pack the flatbread full of ‘meat’ and tzatziki
  2. When I have visited Greece in the past I have seen that they also added fries and salad – which also tastes delicious as this is what I did with mine
  3. Then wrap it all up and enjoy!
