1 - 8 ounce package tempeh (I used Litelife Veggie)
4 slices rye bread
Sauerkraut, as desired
1000 Island Dressing (Mix Veganaise, ketchup, dijon, and relish)
Vegan cheese (Optional, I used Follow Your Heart Monterrey Jack)
1. Slice and steam tempeh. Place pieces in fry pan with 1/4 cup water, bring to boil, and steam until water has evaporated, about 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle pepper to taste.
2) Plug in panini press. Spread dressing on bread, pile on sauerkraut, vegan cheese. Add tempeh when done.
3. Cook in press, letting liquids spill out and flavors merry. If cheese doesn't melt to your liking, place under broiler.
