When I created a Raw Hemp Seed Tzatziki last week, I knew I needed to make the perfect vegan gyro to go with it. Thus, these Portobello Gyros were born. I’m a big fan of using mushrooms or other vegetables in place of meat in most situations. As much as I love the taste of vegan meat substitutes, they are often quite processed and a bit hard to digest. I much prefer fresh, whole foods like these meaty, delicious Portobellos Gyros!
The shining star of this recipe is Vegan Worchestershire sauce. It lends the perfect amount of complexity to the flavor of the Portobello Gyros without the trouble of measuring out a ton of ingredients. Many Worchestershire sauces are vegan, but some contain fish sauce so be sure to check the label. I like Annie’s Organics brand. I found it at my local health food store and it’s also carried online.
I swear I could eat portobello mushrooms every day! They are so good, especially in these Portobello Gyros. I’m going to test a fully raw version of these Portobello Gyros soon so stay tuned! 🙂
