OK, more cookbook love here. I have been ruminating and marinating about all the possibilities that could arise from my obsession with Vegan Cooking for Carnivores! I got to thinking about the Tzatziki sauce recipe (pg. 60) an just how long it had been since I had a Gyro (insert magic wand music….) and was inspired to make Pita! Gluten Free Pita no less! I have never made it before but I am talking totally motivated here so I gave it a try. See this pic? Proof. I did it, ooh and they are soooo good.
Next came the sauce. I had originally planned on making this all for dinner but 2:00 is a good time to eat dinner, right? The amazingly fresh fragrance of this Tzatziki sauce made it impossible to wait!! I only made one little change and that was to add some Tofutti sour cream. I am not a huge fan of soy yogurt and this helped to bump it up a bit. Either way-this stuff is so cool and delicious that it is HOT!
Pita? Check. Sauce? Double check. Tofeta? Yes, I said Tofeta (pg. 89). Oh baby, back that truck up-this is good.
I used Gardine Burger patties and seasoned them will with my secret, homemade Greek seasoning mix; added some home grown greens from a good friend and a little tomato and, voila, the gods would be proud to eat this on Olympus! So, Gluten Free, Vegan Gyro is a possibility and see that Gyro up there? Is it gone? Why yes, yes it is.
I’m telling you-you gotta get this cookbook!!!!
And jsyk-I love to share really great stuff and am not employed or otherwise in cahoots with anyone associated with this book.
