Fenix Style Veggie Beef Gyros
1 package Trader Joe's meatless beef strips
3 sheets Trader Joe's lavash bread
12 oz jar roasted red peppers
1/2 cup plain fat free yogurt
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
crushed red pepper
Drain the red peppers. In a food processor combine the red peppers, yogurt, salt, paprika and crushed red pepper to taste. Process until smooth. Take about 1/4 cup of the red pepper sauce and toss it with the meatless strips. Let them marinate for 15 minutes or so and then saute until browned. Chop in smaller pieces.Lay the bread out horizontally. Layer lettuce leaves first across the middle. Top with meatless strips. Add crumbled feta, thinly sliced avocado, diced tomato and top with red pepper sauce.
Fold bottom part of bread up over the sandwich filling and then roll it over to close it. Slice into three pieces. If I'd had some red onion on hand I would have used it - some kalamata olives would have been good too...or cucumber. In any case - these were really good and we've been using the red pepper sauce on other sandwiches as well.
The next day we saw the owner at a nearby coffee shop and visited with him a little more. I love that small town aspect of Whittier. We also love Fenix 5-4 and look forward to many more awesome lunches :-)
