Zucchini & Mushroom Gyros

Loving this recipe to death! Had it for dinner tonight and it tasted like a cheat meal…. although it was not! Excited to share… :

Serves: 2

Calories per serving: 150 (including pita)

Ingredients: 

  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4″ pieces
  • 1 8oz container of button mushrooms, stems cut, and cut in half
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dry)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 whole wheat pitas
  • Sliced cucumber, for topping (optional)
  • Sliced tomato, for topping (optional)
  • Cut up romaine lettuce, for topping (optional)

Directions: 

  1. In a medium sized bowl combine lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic, and oregano.
  2. Add mushrooms and zucchini to the mixture and toss until well combined.
  3. You can either roast the veggies for 20-25 minutes in the oven at 425 degrees OR fry on stove for 3-4 minutes until char marks appear and liquid has evaporated or when soft.
  4. When just about to serve, heat up whole wheat pita bread.
  5. Once veggies are ready, transfer them onto the warm pita and top with toppings of choice.
  6. Serve with choice of side (I usually serve with sweet potato french fries)
