Thinly sliced tempeh simmered in a flavorful broth makes a great sandwich "meat" in this deli classic. Look for Follow Your Heart vegan cheese, which melts better than other brands.

Ingredients

SEASONED TEMPEH

  • 1/4 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. tempeh, sliced
  • THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING

  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbs. relish
  • 2 Tbs. ketchup
  • SANDWICHES

  • 16 slices rye bread
  • 5 oz. vegan Monterey Jack cheese, sliced
  • 2 cups sauerkraut

Directions

1. To prepare Seasoned Tempeh: Combine liquid aminos, onion, garlic, bay leaf and 2 cups water in saucepan over medium heat. Add tempeh slices, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer 20 minutes. Cover, and let tempeh cool in broth.

2. To make Thousand Island Dressing: Stir together mayonnaise, relish and ketchup in small bowl.

3. To make Sandwiches: Toast 8 slices bread. Set aside. Drain tempeh, and discard liquid, onion, garlic and bay leaf. Place 3 slices tempeh on each slice of remaining bread. Top with cheese slices. Toast or broil 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted.

4. Top each sandwich with 1/4 cup sauerkraut. Spread toasted bread slices with Thousand Island Dressing. Place tops on sandwiches, and slice in half.
