Direcitons for Sandwiches
Heat a griddle and add oil. Add 4 slices bread to griddle. Top with 2 teaspoons dressing, 2 slices tempeh and beet mixture, 1 slice cheese, and 1 tablespoon sauerkraut. Top with remaining bread slices, flip, and cook on second side until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm.
Tip: If you don’t have time to cook your own tempeh, try this recipe with vegan deli meat. We prefer smoked Tofurky slices for this sandwich.
