Herbivore - Shawarma

The write up for the Shawarma is on Weekly Vegan Menu.

There are three components to this dish:
The Filling
The Hummus
The Assembly

The Filling:

Use either shredded seitan (Tender Seitan is good) or a rehydrated TVP chunk or Soy Curls:

Par-boil your potatoes, peel them and dice them. Dice your onions, mince your garlic and heat a large skillet.

Add the potatoes, onions and garlic to the pan. Brown them as best as you can.

Prepare your seasonings. You will need paprika, salt and pepper.

Add them to the sauteing protein and potatoes. Keep browning them.

until a nice crust develops on the protein and the potatoes. 

The Hummus:

Make your hummus by having warm chickpeas ready. If they are not warm, heat them up in simmering water.

Drain the chickpeas.

You will blend/process them with paprika (not pictures), garlic, salt, pepper, tahini and lemon juice.

Add some olive oil along with the other ingredients.

Blend until smooth. You can also use a food processor.

The Assembly:

You will need the hummus, the protein and potatoes, tomatoes, pickles, avocado and hot sauce. Not to mention the flat bread.

After heating the flat bread until warm to help facilitate rolling, layer your filling:
hot sauce

Using a knife to hold everything tight while you begin the roll,

roll the shawarma as tightly as you can.

Spray with some oil...

...and broil ...

...until golden and crisp.
