Health Highlights


2 medium mushroom(s) Portobello mushroom (sliced )
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (or vegan Worcestershire sauce )
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Maple syrup, pure
2 medium pita Pita bread, whole-wheat
1 cup hulled Hemp seeds, shelled (hemp tzatziki )
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced,hemp tzatziki )
2 from 2 lemons Lemon juice (hemp tzatziki )
2 tbsp Tahini (hemp tzatziki )
2 cucumber(s) Cucumber (hemp tzatziki )
1 tbsp Mint, fresh (chopped, hemp tzatziki )
1 tbsp Parsley, fresh (chopped, hemp tzatziki )
1 tbsp Dill, fresh (chopped,hemp tzatziki )
4 tbsp Water (hemp tzatziki )


For tzatziki: 

  1. Chop the cucumbers into small pieces. In a blend or food processor, combine the hemp seeds, tahini, minced garlic, lemon juice, and water. Blend or process until smooth and creamy. If it's too thick, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

  2. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the herbs and chopped cucumber. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 2-3 days.


For the gyros: 

  1. n a small bowl, whisk together the Worchestershire, cumin, and maple syrup. Pour the marinade over the portobello slices and stir until evenly combined. I like to put it all in a tupperware container and shake it up. Set aside for 15 minutes. Prepare the Raw Tzatziki.
  2. Heat a skillet on medium. With a bit of water or cooking oil, sauté the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Warm 2 pitas in a skillet, roughly ten seconds on each side. Divide the portobello gyros between the two pitas and top each one with ¼ Raw Tzatziki. The portobello gyros will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Serves 2.
