Vegan Beef Gyro Fries & Creamy Vegan Tzatziki

As you guys know, I love to test out different vegan products when they come out, so when I was visiting Metro last week, which is what I like to call Romanian Costco, I found a big ass bag of vegan beef. After some quick math to figure out if the grams versus price was worth it–it was–I dropped it in the giant shopping cart and started creating recipes in my mind.

I’ve cooked a few different vegan gyro recipes including Mediterranean Vegan Gyro Fries, Vegan Gyro Bowl and Vegan Gyro Salad Bowl. But this new vegan beef from Metro is delicious. It’s not too greasy or too dry that you need to add extra fat. And the best part? It soaks up flavors like you would not believe. Whether it’s broth or sauce, you won’t be disappointed with this vegan beef product…if you can find it.

The weather here has been INSANE. So hot that most days I’ve been tempted to make something like salad or sandwiches, anything that doesn’t require turning on the oven or the stove. The air fryer will do in a pinch but I also want to eat good, warm food so that’s my dilemma.

But this was my Hubs’ night to cook so I asked for gyro fries with vegan yogurt tzatziki sauce and even though HE forgot to take photos of the vegan tzatziki sauce, I’m still posting this recipe.

I hope you try it and enjoy it. Leave a link in the comments or find me on Instagram with your recipes.

Vegan Junk Food ~ Vegan Animal Fries

Sometimes you have to take a break from your healthy eating regimen and just go a little big garbage-y. Right?

I’m not really a person that subscribes to so-called cheat days, at least I try not to be, but if I’m having a craving for something then I’ll just go with it–in moderation–and eat something better for the next meal or the next day. But my go-to hack for vegan junk food is to keep the portion sizes adequate and that seems to work for me.

I’d rather finish my plate and want more than push away from the table in regret.

But that’s just me.

Vegan animal fries with homemade burger sauce

So when The Husband requested Animal Fries for dinner the other night, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do, I just had to be very careful how I weighed everything out so we could get enough of everything to make it proper vegan animal fries without going overboard. The last time I made Beyond Animal Fries, they were incredibly delicious but also packed with calories and fat and just…junk.

So I added more ingredients but in a lesser quantity. Intrigued?
