Tempeh Reuben Sandwich

This weekend went by so quickly.

My husband has a cold, so I've been taking care of him for the past few days. I think that I'm also fighting this cold, and therefore have slept a total of 25 hours Friday and Saturday night.

Besides sleeping, I've been doing a lot of cooking.

Tonight I made a tempeh reuben sandwiches, and they were delicious!


1 8oz package of tempeh
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp tamari
1/4 tsp paprika
1 dash chili flakes
1/4 tsp fresh thyme
1 medium garlic clove, minced


1. Cut the tempeh into two pieces, each resembling a deck of cards. Next, split each deck so they are 1/4 inch thick.

2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Dip each piece of tempeh into the sauce coating each side, and place in a frying pan that has been coated with 1 tbsp olive oil. Fry the tempeh on each side until golden brown. Once cooked, pour the remaining sauce over the tempeh and cook covered for 5 minutes.

3. Place tempeh on toasted bread with a slice of cheddar cheese, mustard, and lots of sauerkraut.
