Had these fabulous donairs the other night. Might not be the same as what I remember having out on the street but I’m pretty certain that it’s a whole lot better for me, the environment and the animals it didn’t include.

The basis of this creation was a post at https://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-recipe/halifax-mushroom-donair/ where there is a sauce recipe and one for the rest of the filling including the mushrooms and the spices to use. This was very tasty but with the mushrooms cooked down, it didn’t really look like that much food (so note, that you may want to double or even quadruple the recipe). I remembered then that I had some of the following seitan sliced and frozen in the freezer. A couple minutes later it was heated and stuffed into my face!

This recipe was posted in the Facebook group VEGAN EDUCATION GROUP – NOVA SCOTIA would likely have to be a subscriber to see it there if I could find it again.
