Vegan Shawarma Pita with Tahini Sauce
This vegan shawarma recipe is made from jackfruit, seasoned with shawarma spices and rolled in pita bread for a traditional Middle Eastern shawarma wrap with tahini sauce and veggies.
Using your fingers or a fork, pull apart the jackfruit into small shreds that resemble pulled pork.
In a pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and the shredded jackfruit. Add the shawarma paste, cilantro, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, until the jackfruit is slightly browned and crispy.
While the jackfruit is cooking, prepare the pita and toppings. Cut the pitas in half and warm them in the oven for a few minutes.
Slice the cucumbers, dice the tomatoes, and slice the red onion.
To assemble the shawarma pitas, add the sautéed jackfruit to each pita half. Top with some lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion on each pita half.
Add a spoonful of tahini sauce and harissa to each pita half. Fold the pita halves around the filling and serve immediately.
