This vegetarian gryo recipe is a riff on the classic, with help from tasty herbed chickpeas and an easy homemade tzatziki.


  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained & rinsed

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Oregano Leaf

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Rosemary Leaf

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Ground Cumin

    1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Thyme Leaf

    1/2 + 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Sea Salt, divided

    1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Black Pepper

    1 cup plain Greek yogurt

    1/2 cup shredded cucumber

    2 tablespoons Frontier Co-op Dill Weed

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Garlic Powder

    Zest from 1 lemon

    4 whole wheat pitas, warmed

    1 cup sliced tomatoes

    1/2 cup sliced red onions


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drain, rinse, and lightly dry chickpeas. Place on a sheet tray and toss with olive oil, herbs, spices, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until chickpeas are hot and just starting to brown.
    2. While chickpeas are roasting, make tzatziki. Combine yogurt with shredded cucumber, dill, garlic powder, zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine, then let rest.
    3. When chickpeas are done, take pita and slather 1/4 cup of tzatziki in center. Layer with chickpeas, tomatoes and sliced onions. Finish with a sprinkle of black pepper and serve with more tzatziki on the side.


    Make vegan by replacing the Greek yogurt with a vegan yogurt or a cashew cream.
