I loooooove Greek gyros. LOVE. They’re actually my favorite food. But I do not love the way they make me feel afterwards because of all that bread.
In my homage to the mighty gyro we ditch the bread and replace it with super yummy, super healthy quinoa. Plus it’s much easier! And you know what? I’ve grown to love this version even more than the original. Which is a freakin’ LOT.
(PS – All of my recipes are what I call ‘throw-together’. You won’t see much measuring. This makes them super easy!)
Cook quinoa according to package directions, but sub chicken broth for the water
Brown a pound of ground beef with two cloves of minced garlic. Season with oregano, rosemary, salt, and pepper while cooking
Spoon cooked quinoa into bowls and top with the meat, some grape tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, and sliced red onion
Sprinkle with crumbled feta and add a dollop of tzatziki sauce on top (I typically use store bought to save time. You can find premade tzatziki sauce either in your store’s dairy section or near the deli items)
OPTIONAL: If you’d prefer to make your own tzatziki, just mix 16oz plain Greek yogurt with some grated cucumber, 2 cloves minced garlic, juice of half a lemon, a couple tablespoons olive oil, and some fresh dill.
Hey! I’m Julie.
I help busy moms feed their families healthy foods in a lot less time.
I’m the founder of Well Fed Families, a mom of three kids who I had over the span of 21 years (I like doing things slowly sometimes), a lover of food, and an 80’s rock fanatic. I also dig jail shows and anything from the 1940s.
As you can tell from the above I’m a little weird. I‘m also a little funny (okay, sometimes a lot funny).
But one thing’s for sure…..I’ve been doing this healthy eating thing for my family for a loooooong time.
And most importantly? Moms who are feeling overwhelmed by that whole concept are my HEART! I want to help you in any way I can, because I know how hard it can be sometimes.
So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3
Psst…before you leave be sure to grab the free cookbook below! It’s my little way of saying thanks for checking out Well Fed Families….
Does dinner time stress you out?
Hate being tied to the kitchen when you get home, when you just want to RELAX already?!
I feel ya, sister.
That’s why I created a cookbook just for us: the exhausted moms who long for easy weeknights, but still want to feed our family healthy meals.
And I have a sample version with your name on it.
