Boy, do we have a Meatless Monday dinner idea for you here. Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern dish, similar to a Greek gyro. This is a delicious vegan shawarma bowl, packed with cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and chickpeas.

The shawarma seasoning is what provides that punch of flavor. It includes cumin, paprika, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and so much more. You can take it a step further by stuffing a soft pita or naan bread with the ingredients and enjoy it in sandwich form.
