Vegan Reuben Sandwich

Last weekend, on my way to Vancouver, I travelled to Victoria to hang out with my imaginary friends, Chazz and Frances, and to meet up with some fellow plant-eaters from the Clean Food, Dirty Girl Facebook group for lunch on Sunday.

We had a great meal at Rebar, where I ordered a tempeh Reuben sandwich.

And I’ve been thinking about that delicious sandwich ever since. Today, I decided to make my own vegan Reuben sammie!

Now, a classic Reuben is corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing on rye, so the only actual resemblance my sandwich has to a classic Reuben is my homemade sauerkraut!

I had no rye flour, so I made a loaf of my no-knead bread in a covered casserole to get a nice soft crust:Screen Shot 2018-07-12 at 7.08.14 PM

I marinated the tempeh in my universal marinade and baked it.


I made this vegan thousand island dressing and pulled out a jar of my homemade sauerkraut.

Next, I assembled that sucker!


And served it up with the first corn of the summer–compliments of Bid and Paul, who brought it over from Hornby Island last evening!


A perfect meal for a hot July Saturday evening!!
