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