Hearty, healthy, filling, and fresh: Vegetarian gyros stuffed with smashed potatoes and feta #Recipes#healthy food#vegetarian March 8 | Guest post by Kim I was looking for something healthy to make last weekend and consulted my Archive of Bookmarks. I found Shutterbean's Potato Feta Gyros and headed out the door to get ingredients! Potato feta gyro ingredients (my recipe makes 4 servings, nutritional info below!) 4 medium sized white potatoes, washed and boiled 1 tomato, sliced thinly 1/3 red onion, sliced thinly 4 flatbreads/gyros/pitas/what have you 1 tsp. crushed or minced garlic 1 tbsp. parsley, chopped finely 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese 1 tsp. crushed red pepper Salt and pepper to taste For the cucumber yogurt sauce (tzatziki): 1 cup greek yogurt 1/3 cucumber, grated 1 tsp. crushed or minced garlic 1 tbsp. lemon juice 1 tsp. lemon zest Salt and pepper to taste To start, wash, halve, and boil the potatoes until fork tender.

Thinly slice the tomato and red onion. Also, make the cucumber yogurt sauce. It's super simple. Just thoroughly mix together the yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice and zest, salt, and pepper. When the potatoes are just about done, ready a bowl with all the mix-ins (feta, parsley, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper): When the potatoes are done, dry them off a bit and mash them into your mixture. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. Create an assembly area to put these gyros together. I layered my gyros as follows: cucumber yogurt sauce, tomatoes, onion, and the potatoes. These were really yummy. Hearty, healthy, filling, and fresh. My partner loved them, too (and he's never the first to admit how much he loves a vegetarian meal).
