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