Tempeh Reuben Sandwich
Tempeh is an organic fermented soy product, very high in protein and considered to be a great replacement to meat.
This a much healthier alternative to the original Reuben sandwich for us non-meat eaters.
Everyone who has tried these, LOVE them!
1- 8 oz. package of Tempeh
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 tbs. Dijon Mustard
2 tbs. Coconut Amino Acids or Soy Sauce
1 tbs. Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Liquid Smoke
Prepare your marinade in a small bowl and set aside.
Cut and slice Tempeh (see pic), oil a cast-iron skillet (preferred) and brown each side over med-high heat. When browned, add marinade and let it sizzle! Turn down heat to simmer. The tempeh will soak up the sauce which will be a sticky paste in 5-6 minutes.
1/2 cup vegenaise
2 tbs. organic pickle relish
1-2 tbs. organic ketchup
Mix all together.
Brush olive oil and garlic powder on your slices of Rye bread and put in a toaster oven to toast. To assemble your sandwich: apply sauce to bread, add tempeh, sliced avocado (cheese replacement) and load it up with sauerkraut. ENJOY!
Please use organic sauerkraut and pickle relish,
as traditional products use Sodium Benzoate as a preservative.
