Tempeh Gyros w Tofu Tzatziki

I love that I’ve been cooking Vegan for over 1 year now and am still finding new ways to cook with Tempeh and Tofu! This Tempeh Gyro hit the spot, and I think the Tofu Tzatziki was even better than regular tzatziki 🙂 I also served these with oven roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus
