  • 2 large eggplants, cubed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dukka za'atar (or sub for 1 tbsp ground cumin and 1 tbsp dried thyme)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped
  • 4 pita breads or flat breads
  • Step 1 Dice the eggplant and add to a bowl to cover with some olive oil, dukka za’atar and oregano.
  • Step 2 Warm up 1 or 2 large frying pans (I needed 2) and add the diced eggplant to it. It will shrink but it’s best not to add too much eggplant to 1 pan to make sure it’s getting cooked quicker.
  • Step 3 Cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes until tender.
  • Step 4 Combine the sliced onion and vinegar in a bowl. Let sit while you cook the eggplant and make dip in the meanwhile.
  • Step 5 Make the gyros: add dip to flat bread and add the drained onions, cucumber, tomato, and cooked eggplant. Serve wrapped in foil and enjoy!
