Souvlaki is a Greek specialty traditionally made with meat served in pita breads with a cucumber and yogurt-based Tzaziki sauce. This vegan version has just the same amazing flavor with Seitan as a substitute. You will want seconds of this one!

  • 1 container vegan plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely minced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cucumber, minced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley and other herbs, to taste
  • juice of one lemon, or to taste
  • pita bread
  • onions
  • tomatoes
  • Seitan
  • Tamari soy sauce


  1. For the Tzaziki sauce, blend together the first 10 ingredients until smooth.
  2. Assemble the Souvlaki by stuffing pitas with onions, tomatoes, medium-sized cubes of seitan and Tamari soy sauce.
