Donairs were a favourite of mine before I went vegetarian, and I haven't been able to figure out what I could use as a meat substitute in it. There are a lot of options, but I just don't have the money to try too many.

I want it to have a similar texture to donair meat. That's what's most important. Similar taste (once you put the sweet sauce on) would be nice as well, but texture really is important to me. Similarly, is the typical sweet sauce recipe vegetarian?

I live in Western Canada.

    Hi, welcome to the site. I think that when asking for products, it is generally helpful to mention your country/wider geographical area so that you can be given specific answers depending on what products are available there. – Alexander Rossa Oct 27 at 10:15
  • For clarity, are you looking for a meat substitute that is totally plant-based? Or are you okay with the substitute containing eggs and/or dairy? – Nic Oct 27 at 15:29
