Seitan Gyros

dinner, mediterranean, Seitan


  • 1 1/4 cups vital wheat gluten
  • 4 TBS nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 onion – minced
  • 1 clove garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry basil
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 DROPS (like tears drops – because this shit gets overpowering FAST) liquid smoke (optional)
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 3/4 cup water (or more if necessary)


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all the wet ingredients (onion, garlic, liquid smoke, water, ketchup, tahini) in one bowl & the dry (wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, basil, oregano & pepper) in another & combine them.  It comes together fast & looks like raw hamburger – if hamburger was doughy.

3. Grease a loaf pan & press this shit in there, COVER IT WITH FOIL & bake it for about an hour.  Or just kinda shape it on some foil, wrap it up & bake it.

When you are ready to make the sandwich, slice off some seitan & fry it up until warmed through.
