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

Preparation

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.

To make Thousand Island Dressing:

Stir together mayonnaise, relish, and ketchup in small bowl.

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.

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