Eggplant Gyros? Trust me! This is such a taste revolution!
This Gyros is served in a fluffy pita and topped with fresh yoghurt. It’s a perfect food for my “Healthy Fast Food Carnival”. I really love healthy fast food like roasted sweet potatoes with guacamole or self-made fries. There are so many possibilities to bring more healthiness in your diet without losing taste.
I recognize a big trend for a healthy living and I get asked so often how to live more healthy. It starts with the small things. If you are interested in learning how you can live more healthy permanently read my post about: Dietary Change for a better wellbeing

Back to this easy delicious pita with eggplant gyros!
They are definitely one of our newest favorites! You can release the flavors by grilling the eggplants really easy. Eggplants are bitter. A great tip to reduce the bitterness is to soak them with salt for 10 minutes. You simple need at least a half tablespoon of salt for every medium sized eggplant. Drain and rinse them after 10 minutes. The salt will help to draw the bitter liquid out from the eggplant. It also helps the eggplant pieces stay more shapely and become tender during cooking instead of becoming soggy. The iron and calcium in eggplant supply the essential nutrients required by the body.
