Cut upton’s naturals into 1/8″ strips. In a bowl, coat with the ingredients and mix. Add mushroom broth to a hot sautee pan and add coated seitan. Cook. When fully warmed and cooked, put on low.

Warm Pita. Mix Tzatziki Sauce ingredients. Put aside. Take plant-based gyros off heat and put on warm pita.
