Scale

Ingredients

For the gyros:

  • 6 pita breads
  • 1 medium eggplant, sliced thickly lengthwise
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced thickly lengthwise
  • 2 bell peppers (red, orange, green or yellow), sliced thickly
  • 1 red onion, cut into thick wedges
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the yogurt-feta dip:

  • 2 cups (500g) plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled + extra for topping
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin, freshly ground
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 handful black olives, minced (optional)
  • Salt and freshly black pepper

Instructions

  1. For the marinade: in a small bowl, combine lemon juice, olive oil, water, garlic, herbes de Provence, salt and pepper.
  2. Place sliced vegetables in a large dish and pour the marinade over. Toss the vegetables to coat. For best results, let marinate for half an hour. Otherwise, start grilling right away.
  3. Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables and grill a couple of minutes per side, or until grill marks are formed and the vegetables are tender all the way through. As you grill, brush on the leftover marinade.
  4. For the yogurt-feta dip, mix all the ingredients together. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  5. Warm the pita breads on the grill just before assembling the sandwiches.
  6. For assembling the sandwiches, lay out the warmed pita, top each of them with equal parts of grilled vegetables and crumbled feta cheese. Drizzle with desired amount of yogurt-feta dip. Fold the gyros in half, and serve immediately.
