The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Delicious GF Vegan Shoarma

The shoarma (shawarma)
Is a very Dutch dish. It’s similar to the concept of a kebab and would normally be a meaty feast. Though it originated in the Middle East it’s very popular here in The Netherlands

It’s very simple to make as a midweek dinner.

We often make a vegetarian version but this time the sauce was vegan.

The recipe is served with fresh sliced tomato and pepper on a flat bread. We used a gluten free tortilla.

What you need:
‘Meat’-Vegetarian meat substitute eg soya
1 tbsp olive oil
2 medium sliced onion
3 chopped garlic cloves
1 sliced red bell pepper (keep some for garnish)
Fresh coriander/cilantro (from the garden) finely chopped
1 tsp Shoarma spices

(Shoarma spices include paprika powder, coriander seed, turmeric, cumin seed, clove, black pepper, fenugreek seed, cayenne pepper, ground ginger and spices.)


What to do
Sauté the onion in oil, add the soya and stir for a few minutes
Add the red pepper
Add the shoarma spices and stir
Add coriander just before serving

To serve
Flatbreads or tortillas
Fresh sliced tomato
Sliced red pepper
Fresh coriander

Vegan mayonnaise
Fresh raw crushed garlic
Fresh chopped coriander (cilantro)


It’s fast food without the flesh. Serve on a warm flat bread accompanied by the sliced bell pepper and tomato
