  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 whole wheat or gluten-free pitas
  • Sliced red onion, sliced tomatoes, and shredded lettuce, for serving
  • Vegan tzatziki sauce (see below)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cauliflower florets, olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Toss until the cauliflower is evenly coated.
  3. Spread the cauliflower in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned, stirring halfway through cooking.
  4. While the cauliflower is roasting, warm the pitas according to package instructions.
  5. To assemble the gyros, spread a spoonful of vegan tzatziki sauce on each pita. Top with roasted cauliflower, sliced red onion, tomatoes, and lettuce. Roll up the pitas and serve immediately.

Vegan Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 cup vegan plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, grated and excess water squeezed out
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (or 1 teaspoon dried dill)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Adjust seasoning to taste. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
