Seitan Shawarma Bowl

Seitan Shawarma Bowl


This low carb shawarma bowl uses seitan as both it's protein and carb source while pairing it with a creamy dressing that packs healthy fats from all natural tahini. 

ADD CARBS & make it a handheld! Grab large whole wheat tortillas and wrap it up. 


Recipe notes:

The Shawarma Kebab from Gusta Foods (linked below) is what I've used to make this recipe super simple and delicious, thanks to the pre-seasoned seitan. However if you can't get the Gusta Foods brand near you, you have options: 

Season any preferred protein like plain seitan, tofu, tempeh, tvp, or tpp with a mixture of these seasonings - cumin, paprika, turmeric, coriander, and cinnamon.

Sauerkraut is not a traditional ingredient to see in a shawarma bowl or wrap, but what is is something pickled. I used sauerkraut because I almost always have it on hand. But you could use pickled cabbage or onions, pickled turnip, or straight up pickles! The key here is to add the sour (and probiotic) element.


Recipe makes 4 servings

Macros per serving:

427 cals - 23g fat - 22g carbs - 33g protein



400g or 2 packages Gusta Foods Kebab Shawarma  (see recipe notes)

2 cups purple cabbage

6-8 cups lettuce (depending how big you want the base of your bowl!)

1 english cucumber

1 cup sauerkraut (see recipe notes)

**If making into a wrap**

4 whole wheat tortillas (add this to the macros for up to 40g+ protein per serving!)



1/4 cup tahini 

1/2 cup oat milk

2 cloves garlic

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp salt 



Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Spread the Gusta Kebab Shawarma across the baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes. Just enough that the edges get a little crispy.

Prep all your veggies by chopping into desired shapes/sizes.

Layer 4 bowls or containers with lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, sauerkraut, and kebab shawarma.

**Alternatively wrap everything up into 4 whole wheat tortillas!**



Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

Drizzle 1/4 of the dressing on each bowl when ready to eat! 

**Alternatively for meal prep add the dressing to the bottom of each container before layering your salad ingredients and protein.
