Notes

Tips to achieve the best results when making the plan-based meatballs gyros:
  • Head over to Publix and purchase all the ingredients, including the Pure Farmland Italian Style Plant-Based Meatballs.
  • Cook the meatballs in the oven following the instructions in the package. We opted for adding a little bit of Italian spice rub and olive oil.
  • Choose the correct flatbread. The ideal one is not too small and not too large. Those with buttery flavor are our favorites.
  • Use homemade preserved lemons. These lemons add tasty citrus and salty note, plus aroma. This ingredient is optional; however, it adds a surprisingly delicious flavor.
  • The cucumbers chosen are those seedless. Do not need to peel.
  • The tomatoes must be ripe and juicy. And the purple onions finely chopped.
  • Use fresh parsley, preferably hand-cut, not chopped.
  • Olive oil, thyme, oregano, and lemon juice are all staples of Mediterranean cuisine. Use these ingredients to season the cucumber salsa.
  • The field greens are a tender baby leaf mix.
  • And the final touch is a tahini dressing for a nutty note.
