This is a dangerous recipe for me - delicious - I have missed reubens! Here is my version: Pumpernickel bread (Beefsteak brand) 2 pkgs tempeh makes 8 sandwiches. Slice each tempeh in half to make two squares. Slice those squares in half lengthwise (so that they are twice as thin - really, it works!) Sprinkle the slices with soy sauce before browning them in a little oil in a saute pan. Remove. Brush one side of bread with butter, place butter-side down on griddle, layer one slice tempeh, cheese, 'kraut, top bread layer. Flip them carefully! When cheese melts and bread is crisp, open and spread the inside of each piece of bread (not just one side!) with sauce. Slather. Cut in half, serve. (My children only ate a half sandwich each, so you could say this makes 16 servings but the leftovers are so good - also, it uses up the whole loaf of pumpernickel and less kraut to throw away afterwards so I say make a big batch). The sauce I used was a sort of thousand island minus the relish: 1 c. mayonnaise 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 1/4 c. catsup 1 tsp. grated onion You can also dip into the sauce instead of slathering the bread. I love the slather...messy though. My version has butter and worcestershire as well as real swiss, so it's not technically vegetarian. I think this recipe would get lots more attention if we had a better picture!
