Alsatian Tempeh Casserole

Lemon-marinated tempeh, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes are delicious in this satisfying—yet light—casserole. Shopping tip: We loved this made with Lightlife’s Lemon Tempeh Grilles.



Ingredient Line: 
2 lb. Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ cups chopped red onion
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ cups sauerkraut, drained
Ingredient Line: 
2 5.5-oz. pkg. tempeh burgers, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Boil or steam potatoes 20 minutes, or until tender. Transfer to medium bowl (reserve cooking water) and mash with potato masher, adding tablespoonfuls of cooking water until potatoes are well-mashed. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 Tbs. oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring, 5 to 7 minutes, until soft. Stir in sauerkraut. Reduce heat to low; cover, and cook 15 minutes. Stir in tempeh, and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until heated through. Season with pepper.
  3. Coat 1 1/2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray; add tempeh mixture. Spread potatoes on top, and brush with 1/2 Tbs. oil. Bake 30 minutes, then broil 1 to 2 minutes, or until top is lightly browned. Serve hot.

Comments on this Recipe

I want to make this recipe but I can't find Lightlife?s Lemon Tempeh Grilles ANYWHERE. I'm in NYC and we usually have everything. Can someone tell me where to buy them?
