Tempeh Reuben Sandwich

There's no other comfort food like a stacked sandwich. This piled-high sammy will fill you up, but won't require stretchy pants and a nap afterwards -- a perfect lunch to keep you fueled through a long afternoon. It's another winning recipe for you to try while taking part in this week's Meatout. Be sure to visit Meatout.org to take the pledge, to find fun Meatout events, and to join the growing community on Facebook.

Ingredients:

Reuben Sauce
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. vegan mayonnaise (like Vegenaise)
1 Tbsp. dairy-free milk
1 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. molasses (or substitute maple syrup or brown sugar)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground cloves (optional)

Sandwich
1 Tbsp. olive oil
6 ounces tempeh, cut into 3" to 4" squares, 1/2" thick
1/2 cup sauerkraut, or to taste
4 slices rye bread
1 large tomato, sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced thin

Directions:

1. Reuben Sauce: In a bowl, combine all sauce ingredients; whisk until thoroughly combined.
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add tempeh squares; cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside, about 5 minutes. Remove tempeh and set aside.
3. Add sauerkraut to the skillet; heat just until the moisture is evaporated, about 30 seconds.
4. Slather a quarter of the Rueben sauce on one side of each slice of bread. On two slices, add the cooked tempeh (2 squares per sandwich), heated sauerkraut, tomato, and onion. Top each with the remaining slices, sauce side facing the filling.
5. For a final touch, place the sandwich on the skillet and heat both sides, about 30 seconds each side, so that the bread is nice and toasty.

Google Confirms: Interest in Veganism on the Rise

Compassion Over Killing (COK) reports that the interest in veganism is booming -- and we have some cool graphics to see just how far we've come.

Using Google's Trend application, COK shows that a growing number of people are searching online for information using the word "vegan." View the animated map at COK.net to watch as the map darkens, indicating the sharp increase in vegan-related Google searches.

COK reminds us that "it’s not just interest in veganism that’s growing -- Americans are choosing more and more meat-free meals! The USDA expects a continued decline in meat consumption, with the average American eating 12.2% less meat today than in 2007."

The times they are a-changing. Thank you for the part you've played in helping us move toward a better, more compassionate world -- one vegan search, one animal-free choice at a time.

Spread the Message,
Share a Laugh

It feels good to laugh. Last weekend, Saturday Night Live delighted millions of viewers with a hilarious and light-hearted sketch about the growing popularity of vegan food. Justin Timberlake, dressed as a giant block of tofu, dances and sings the praises of vegan living and invites everyone to "Bring it on down to Veganville."

The popularity of the sketch has been spiralling upwards -- reaching over a million views online within a few hours. Perhaps it's to see the talented Mr. Timberlake; maybe it's the compassionate transformation of the sausage hawker; or maybe it's because viewers are hungry for a spoonful of truth and an all-positive spin on the joys of living vegan.

Share a laugh with friends and family. Get inspired and inspire others to take the Meatout pledge -- and to "Bring it on down to Veganville!"

Watch Justin Timberlake "Bring it on down to Veganville."
