Easy Vegan Lentil Shawarma

As Shawarma is one of the most famous and loved food in the Middle East and far beyond I was eager to create a vegan version which will satisfy these shawarma cravings ;-) This vegan lentil shawarma hits the spot. It is done in less than an hour, is very filling due to its high protein content and tastes delicious. You can play around with different add ons to make it every time a little bit different. You can eighter use small or big Arabic bread, I found the big ones easier to roll. Enjoy!


Fresh Ingredients:
2 small or 1 big pack of Arabic bread
1 small romaine lettuce, sliced
1 big tomato, sliced
1 cup celery, sliced
1 onion, chopped
2 organic garlic clove, diced
Homemade Sauerkraut
Fresh Coriander
Optional: sprouts, any kind of pickles

2 cups green lentils, dry
Coconut oil
Optional: Pomegranate vinegar

Spices/ Herbs:
Himalayan salt, pepper, paprika, ginger, garlic, shawarma spice

How to do:
·         Wash the lentils and cook 2 cups of lentils with around 8 cups of water till the lentils are tender, drain the remaining water
·         Heat up some coconut oil in a pan, add diced garlic and chopped onions and stir it for a minute.
·         Add the lentils and fry it up for about 2 minutes. Add each 1/tsp. of salt, pepper, paprika, ginger and garlic and 1-2 tsp. of shawarma spice (if not available add some cumin, coriander powder and some more of the other spices).
·         Add the sliced celery and stir-fry all together till the celery is soft.

·         Take an Arabic bread and fill it with sliced lettuce, tomato, lentil mix, Gherkins, Sauerkraut, fresh coriander tahini sauce and wrap it up.
