  • 1/2 cup soya chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons plant-based oil divided, start with a little and add more as needed
  • 1/2 onion sliced in half-rings
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon mild paprika powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole caraway seeds


  • First we are going to boil the soya chunks in water until soft. You can use a pan or a pot. Then drain them and press out excess water and set them aside.
  • In a pan with a little oil over medium heat, add the sliced onion and a bit of salt, let it cook until soft.
  • Then add the minced garlic, whole caraway seeds, let it cook further for just a minute or two.
  • Then make some room in the pan for the soya chunks, add those with paprika powder, salt, thyme and a bit more oil. Stir. Bring the heat to high and let it cook until the soya chunks are starting to brown and get a bit crispy on the sides. You might have to add a bit more oil to help them brown. At this point you can also add more salt and other spices to taste.
  • And done! The gyros is perfect for a huge gyros platter with parboiled rice and yogurt sauce or you can also add it into wraps or on salad.
