Oh Mama, It's a Vegan Shawarma!

One of my all time favourite cuisines is Greek. The Mediterranean dishes are just so darn delectable, from yummy Greek salads to grilled vegetable salads and falafel. OK, so unfortunately tons of the specialities aren't exactly made for we vegans, but keep in mind that you can often change up a recipe even just a little bit, to make it animal-free and thus worthy of your particular palate. 


One of the meals in particular that one may not even consider as a vegan is the shawarma. It may not be the easiest to say ten times fast, but you can actually with a bit of creativity, you can actually take this typically meat-based meal and relatively easily make it your own.


The great thing about shawarmas is that they are so fast and simple to prepare. Similar to a pita, you basically just pick and choose the ingredients you want to fill your shawarma up, wrap it up, and open up.


You prepare the shawarma just as normal, only change up the filling to keep it vegan-friendly and only have an animal involved if you feel like sharing a bite with a furry friend. Instead of the usual chicken or lamb and yogurt recipes, stuff your shawarma with a chickpea puree, vegan tzikiki sauce, red onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, and romaine lettuce, Portobello mushrooms and baby spinach. Add a couple of your faves, or pack it all in for a real treat. Shaaawing!

    Shawarma is certainly not an easy one to rhyme with! Came as close as possible though :)
