Bonjour mes chèrs. The Londoner never fails to tempt me with her delicious recipes. So last Sunday, Daniel and I had a go at her gyros recipe. I don’t eat meat, so for my “wrap” we replaced the chicken with some shop-bought falafels (you can get really nice ones that you only need to pop in the oven in the UK). It was everything we had hoped for and better. I was a bit concerned that the Harissa sauce would turn out too spicy, but trust her, it is just perfect! In fact I’ve made it again since. So, even if you’re not going to make the whole recipe, I strongly recommend you give that sauce a go :)
We had these bad boys of wraps with some home-made potato and sweet potato wedges, for which we just cut 3 regular (Maris Piper I believe) and 1 sweet potato into wedges and marinated them in olive oil, paprika, cajun, smoked salt and pepper before putting them in a very hot oven for approximately 35 minutes.
I really really enjoyed this whole meal and I also think that it would be great if you have dinner guests. Replace the chicken with falafels for anyone who doesn’t eat/like meat and you have a wonderfully fuss-free meal. You can prepare pretty much everything before hand, so when your guests arrive, you just need to put the marinated potatoes in the oven, have a couple of drinks with your friends and just before the meal, grill the chicken/chuck the falafels in the oven
Give it a go :) You can find the recipe here.
