Recipe

These Grilled Veggie Gryos may just be my new favorite meatless sandwich. Between the char on the veggies, Mediterranean spice mixture, creamy dill yogurt sauce, and warm pitas - they are just so tasty. I used my favorite combination of veggies but you could use almost any varieties you like. Eggplant would be a great addition. If you want some added protein, consider tossing in some chickpeas.

  1. Grate the cucumber and use a paper towel or cheesecloth to squeeze out all the extra moisture. Stir it into the yogurt along with the lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss it with the vegetables and let rest for 1 hour.
  3. When ready to cook, grill the vegetables in one layer for about 5 minutes per side. Toast the pitas for one minute on the grill.
  4. Layer the vegetables in the pita and top with yogurt.
