This soup is naturally gluten-free and can be easily integrated into a stressful weekly schedule. This soup is prepared in no time and ready to serve.
I had gyros soup at a birthday for the first time and was so impressed with the taste that I had to prepare it at home. However, that was before my vegan time. Now I had to try a vegan version of the classic gyros soup, and I was so excited about the end result that I have to share it with you.
Do you also have soups that you absolutely have to veganize because they are so damn tasty? Then let me know in the comments below. 🙂
What is the difference between gyro and gyros?
Both are pretty similar. The only difference is gyro is middle eastern and gyros is greek. No matter how we call it gyro soup or gyros soup, the most important part is that it is tasty, don’t you think so?
Here, I will show you a brief overview of what we put in the soup. You can find the exact quantities below in the recipe card:
Paprika Powder, smoked
Add the soy curls to a large bowl and add the spices. Now fill the bowl with hot vegetable broth until the soy curls are covered. Let them stand for about 10 minutes or until they are soft. Soak the cashews.
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Cut the onions and bell peppers into strips. Chop the garlic. Now put the onions and the garlic in a pan and steam them with a little water. If you notice that the onions are starting to brown, add a little more water.
Repeat it until the onions have a nice color.
Sieve the soy curls and place them on a baking sheet and fry them in the oven until they are brown. It takes about 15 minutes. Turn them periodically.
Now add the peppers to the onions and briefly sauté them.
Mix the cashews with the water in a high speed blender until they have a creamy consistency.
Now add the remaining ingredients to the peppers and stir vigorously. Bring the soup to boil briefly and add the soy curls. Season the soup again.
Serve with a baguette.
Soy Curls Substitute
If you don't have soy curls on hand or can't find them in the store. You can also use mushrooms. Simply cut 2 packets of mushrooms into slices and fry them with the spices of the soy curls in the pan with the onions. And proceed as in the recipe. You may have to add fewer spices later because you have all the spices in the pan. Taste the soup before adding more spices.
How does the soup taste like gyros?
I firmly believe that a dish stands or falls with the spices and so does this vegan gyros soup. We use the spices contained in a classic gyros and voila, we get a tasty vegan soup.
You can store the leftovers in the fridge and eat within 3-4 days. Or freeze the soup and let it thaw the night before. You may need to add a little more liquid because the soy curls absorb liquid.
- Play around with the spices to make the soup to your liking.
- If you don't like cashews, add coconut milk and a little less vegetable broth so it doesn't get thin and remains creamy.
- Add other vegetables, e.g. Add green beans, corn, cabbage or potatoes.
