Equipment

Ingredients
  

For the Shawarma Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Shawarma Filling:

  • 4 pita bread rounds
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onions
  • Vegan garlic sauce or tahini sauce for serving

Instructions
 

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients until well combined.
  • Add the sliced seitan or your preferred vegan protein to the marinade. Toss to coat the seitan evenly. Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight for the best flavor.
  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the marinated seitan slices on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes until heated through and slightly crispy. Alternatively, you can cook the seitan slices on a skillet or grill pan over medium heat until heated through and browned.
  • Remove the seitan from the oven or skillet and let it cool for a few minutes. Slice the seitan into thin strips.
  • Warm the pita bread rounds in the oven or on a skillet for a few minutes until soft and pliable.
  • Assemble the shawarma by placing a spoonful of garlic sauce or tahini sauce on the center of each pita bread round. Add a layer of shredded lettuce, followed by the sliced seitan, diced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, and red onions.
  • Roll the pita bread tightly around the filling, forming a wrap. You can wrap it in parchment paper or aluminum foil to hold it together if desired.
  • Serve the vegan Egyptian shawarma wraps immediately and enjoy!
