Crowd-Pleasing Shawarma

Ingredients 🗒 for 2 to share

Plant-based meat - we love shawarma from Vivera

Naan bread, we like it flavoured but plain is


100g red cabbage - finely sliced

1 small red onion - finely sliced

1 sprig of finely chopped rosemary

Splash of red wine vinegar

Splash of soy sauce


150g plain soya yoghurt

100g grated cucumber (the middle is very water so don't use this part)

Small bunch of finely chopped coriander

10 leaves of finely chopped mint

Sprinkle of cracked black pepper

Sprinkle of cumin

Generous pinch of salt

Extra toppings:

Olive tapenade

Finely slice red chilli 

Method 👩‍🍳

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c 

  2. Add all the salad ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix and leave to lightly pickle. For the dressing, mix all ingredients together in another bowl

  3. Add the naan bread onto a tray, drizzle with olive oil and place into the oven for 6 minutes

  4. Warm a small pan to high heat. Add a drizzle of sunflower oil and place the Shawarma meat into the pan. Cook on high heat until it's crispy

  5. Remove the naan from the oven and add to a plate followed by the salad, shawarma meat and the dressing finish with toppings of your choice. We used olive tapenade and finely sliced chilli to give it a kick.
