Spiced Chickpea Gyros 
Author: Sarah Bond 
Recipe Type: Main 
Cuisine: Vegetarian 
Easy roasted and spiced chickpeas with a homemade tzatziki sauce spice up a gyro, no meat needed. 

Ingredients 
1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 
1 Tbsp olive oil 
1 Tbsp paprika 
½ Tbsp ground black pepper 
¼ Tbsp cayenne pepper 
¼ tsp salt 
4 pita flatbreads 
1 cup tzatziki (click the link above for recipe, use ? recipe if you're just making it for just these gyros) 
¼ red onion, cut into strips 
2 lettuce leaves, roughly chopped 
1 tomato, sliced

Instructions 
Pat dry chickpeas with paper towel, removing any skins that may come off.
Gently toss chickpeas with oil, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt.
Spread chickpeas onto a greased rimmed baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees F (200 C) for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned but not hard.
Spread some tzatziki onto one side of the pita, then sprinkle in ¼ of the chickpeas and add veggies. Fold in half and enjoy!

Notes 
If your pita breads crack when you fold them, cover them with a moist paper towel and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Assemble your sandwich immediately after microwaving.
