Eggplant (Aubergine) Gyro

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LoriInIndiana

A meatless twist on the classic Greek sandwich. There is no accident in the multiple measurements of EVOO, it calls for them all. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2.

LOVED these!! I would give these way more than 5 stars if I could! Used 3 baby eggplant, nonfat Greek yogurt in the sauce, brown tomatoes (Kumato), and packaged naan from Costco for the pita bread. I left the veggie mixture (pre-eggplant) out at room temp while I cooked the eggplant and heated up the naan, so the heat of the eggplant and bread warmed up all the veggies. I'll definitely be making these again, thanks for posting! :) Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6
