Chickpea Gyro

Quick and easy weekday meal!


Make your favourite Greek inspired chickpea gyros at home! Tzatziki, fresh tomatoes, onions, crunchy cucumbers and zippy feta cheese all make this dish so flavourful! 
Gyros are usually served with pita bread but I like to make mine with toasted naan bread. It’s so doughy and soft – it works perfectly with the Greek flavours.
To save on time, I use store bought tzaztiki but you can easily make your own!
caprese pasta salad


  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1-2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1-2 cups cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and loosely chopped
  • 1/2 cup tzaztiki
  • Naan bread (I used store bought but you can absolutely make your own!)
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

1. Start by rinsing canned chickpeas and lay out on a tea towel to dry – this step will help get the chickpeas nice and crispy

2. On medium heat, add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the skillet. Add in the chickpeas and a dash of salt and pepper. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring frequently so the chickpeas don’t burn.

3. Add in the oregano, cumin, garlic powder, paprika and 1/4 tsp sea salt & 1/4 tsp pepper. Continue cooking for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from pan and place in a bowl lined with paper towel to soak any excess oil.

4. While the chickpeas are cooking, wash and cut your vegetables – tomato, cucumber, onion, olives and jalapenos

5. In the same pan you roasted the chickpeas, add a touch more olive oil and lightly toast the naan bread, a few minutes on each side until golden brown

6. Build your gyro! On warm naan, spread a generous dollop of tzatziki – add chickpeas, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, olives, onion, and a few jalapenos. Top with feta cheese and a sprinkle of dried oregano!
