I love gyros.
I met them at a little Mediterranean restaurant a couple years ago and have been in love ever since. Since I’d rather eat at home, I made them the other night on my mom’s birthday.
While the turkey is browning, cook your rice. I made brown rice, 2 cups of rice to 4 cups of water.
Next step- the Tzatziki sauce, aka cucumber sauce. I didn’t have a recipe for this, but googled it and found the traditional recipe. I didn’t take the picture, either =p Click Here for the Recipe
Warm your pita up- I like to do it on the stove (I don’t use microwaves for health reasons)- then add your toppings. In addition to the turkey and beans, I put tomatoes and cucumber sauce on mine, and I didn’t have any spinach at the time or that would have been on it as well! I like to put a little rice on my gyros, but it’s however you prefer. What is also really good is the regular gyros toppings, but on brown rice, sans pita.
The birthday meal:
Buttered warm beets fresh from the garden
And sparking cider for me and the boys!
