Portobello Gyro Filling

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • ¼ cup olive oil 60 mL
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce 30 mL
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice 30 mL
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tsp each oregano, smoked paprika, salt, pepper

To serve

  • 4 large pita breads
  • ½ cup feta tzatziki sauce cut tzatziki recipe in half if making it just for these gyros
  • Extras: tomato, red onion, radishes, lettuce, feta


  • Prep: Prepare feta tzatziki sauce (or traditional tzatziki). Slice all veggies.
  • Portobello gyro filling: Remove mushroom stems and clean caps with a wet paper towel. Cut into 1/4 inch slices. In a small bowl, stir together oil, soy, lemon, garlic, and spices. Toss to coat the mushrooms. Cook mushrooms in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, flipping to evenly cook. They should be slightly softened and deep brown when finished.
  • Assemble: Spread tzatziki onto one side of the pita, then add mushroom gyro filling, veggies. and feta. Fold in half and dig in!


  • Vegan: Make this recipe vegan by subbing the tzatziki for this vegan version.
  • Cracked pitas? If your pita breads crack when you fold them, cover them with a moist paper towel and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Assemble gyros immediately after microwaving.
