Reyhan and I both used to love going out for shawarma and kebabs before we went vegan. It makes us so happy that we get to recreate our favourite dishes but cruelty free. There are so many great vegan meat alternatives nowadays that are made with great ingredients. For this recipe, we used Impossible meat ground. The more we choose to put plants our plate, the better for the planet, the animals and our health!
