Dish: Vegetarian Gyros with Jackfruit
All this talk about Gyro is because I’m cooking from a Greek take-out restaurant, Metropulos, in Santa Barbara for this week’s BM and Gyro happens to be one of their specialties. But they make it meat and I made mine with jackfruit.
There are quite a few different versions of vegetarian gyros online, some with roasted veggies, some with seitan, but this jackfruit version looks a little like meat because of it’s texture. Recipe for the jackfruit gyros is from Vegetarian times magazine.
I usually keep a can of green jackfruit in the pantry to make curries. It can easily be found in well stocked Asian/ Indian groceries. The only time consuming part of the dish is making the jackfruit filling and while that is happening, you can prep for the toppings. I made my own flatbreads to serve the gyros and the recipe I found is super simple — I’ll post it very soon.
