I’m pretty sure I was Greek in a past life because I am obsessed with Greek food and all of the flavours, colours, and smell that come with the cuisine! This recipe is super straightforward. Actually, I am not really even going to post a recipe because I kind of just threw it together. Basically, my idea was to take the basic ingredients of traditional Greek souvlaki and use chickpeas and quinoa instead. The only seasonings I added were salt, lemon juice, olive oil and oregano and I seasoned everything with those things. I lightly sautéed the chickpeas, cooked quinoa and red onion and then quickly put together a Greek salad of cucumber, green pepper, and heirloom grape tomatoes which I drizzled with evoo and seasoned with lemon juice, oregano, salt and goats feta! I cheated and bought some store bought tzaziki and just put them altogether in a pita – my pita wrapping skills need some work but the flavour was all there! And, voila a super east and vegetarian weeknight meal + a ton of leftovers!!
