This vegan shawarma doner kebab with tzatziki is so crazy good! In my teenage years, this would have been the 3 am stumbling out of an East London club rescue remedy. I can not believe that I can now have it again – in vegan form! And truly, I think the plant-based version tastes even better. This classic pita sandwich is meat and dairy-free.
The mock duck brand I use is Companion. This company only uses non-GMO wheat gluten, and the only extra ingredients are oil, sugar, soy sauce, and salt. You can get this is most Asian supermarkets. It does not taste like duck; it tastes like a real kebab once seasoned well!
For the tzatziki I personally love using Tofutti for the sour cream component. This sauce strikes the perfect balance between tangy and creamy – without the butterfat, dairy, and cholesterol of a traditional tzatziki recipe. This shawarma is so good and so easy to make. Enjoy!

- Drain and slice the mock duck thinly, then mix well with all the mock duck ingredients to coat evenly.

- Pile on the mock duck and wrap filling ingredients into the (toasted) wraps or pitas. Drizzle on the tzatziki and enjoy!
