Vegan Doner kebap in pita with a vegan yoghurt sauce

The idea to my vegan Doner kebap came when I was speaking to my friends and asked them what they would like to have veganised and a lot of them said they would like a vegan kebap. So I came up with this super easy recipe to show you can easily cure a hangover with this plant-based and much healthier and version of a Doner kebap.

To make the doner I used braised tofu. It comes in a tin and I often take it with me when I go on holidays because I don't need to chill it and it easily fits into my luggage. Braised tofu is very versatile and I use it for many different dishes - from quick vegan pastas to tofu scrambles.

And for the yoghurt sauce I only used soy yoghurt (or any plant-based yoghurt you like), some garlic and salt, super easy.

Have fun making this recipe!

That's what the finished kebap looked like. I didn't have red picked cabbage at home which you can get with kebaps normally but you sometimes get it with red onions and that worked really well.

Just add all ingredients and serve, super easy and fun to do!

Fry the doner ingredients in a pan until almost crispy. The braised tofu worked really well and gave it a great consistency.

The vegan doner was gone in a very short time, everyone loved it!

Drain the liquid from a tin of braised tofu (I get mine either at the health food store or from Amazon). Add some oil to a hot pan and fry the tofu with all other doner ingredients for a few minutes until it gets almost crispy.

To make the soy yoghurt sauce mix up 4 tbsp of soy yoghurt (or any other plant-based yoghurt you prefer), add 1/2 tsp of garlic powder (or minced garlic) and season to taste with a dash of salt.

Toast a pita bread and then slice open. Fill it with salad leaves, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and sliced onion rings, add the vegan doner ingredients and then top with soy yoghurt sauce and some chilli sauce. Any unsweetened chilli sauce will do - I used Sriracha sauce which tasted great). Enjoy!

And if you like comfort food as much as I do why not try my vegan sausage recipe.
