Gyro-style Veggie Burger

Teresa Jacobson


This is my version of the gyro sauce, tzatziki. It's a sauce my mother-in-law taught me to make by taste and texture without any measurements. I've made faux gyros for years using pitas, thinly sliced roast beef, shredded lettuce and this sauce. Since we went vegetarian, I've REALLY been missing my gyros! This is as close to that as I can get and still be vegetarian! It was fantastic!
