Chickpea gyros with dairy-free Tzatziki sauce

 

These chickpea gyros are perfect and comforting.  They are flavorful and make an excellent meatless dinner or lunch.

If you’re a frequent visitor to this website, then you know that I love Greek food.  And no, I am not Greek.  I just happened to have grown up near an amazing Greek restaurant in Chicagoland and got hooked on Greek flavors at a young age.  The gyro is probably my favorite sandwich.  But I am not always in the mood for heaps of meat on my sandwiches.

Roasted chickpeas have become one of my favorite snacks over these past few years.  I love putting them on salads and snacking on them too.  I decided to roast some chickpeas in the oven with my favorite Greek seasoning.  These chickpeas pair well with fresh vegetables.
