Tempeh Ruben

This is almost vegan. It tastes amazing! Even hubby liked it! Next time I’d pop them under the broiler to melt the cheese a bit more.

8 oz tempeh, sliced in half and quartered

2 tsp olive oil

1/4 c orange juice

1/8 tsp ground ginger

Dash of allspice

1/8 tsp mustard seed

1/8 tsp brown sugar

1 tbsp minced garlic

Salt and pepper

4 slices Swiss of vegan cheese

1 c sauerkraut, drained

4 slices rye, toasted

Thousand island dressing

Combine olive oil, oj, ginger, allspice, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper in a zip lock bag, add tempeh and marinade for 30+ minutes.

Cook the tempeh in a skillet over medium heat until browned.

Spread 1 tbsp thousand island dressing on bread, top with tempeh and Swiss cheese.
