Tempeh Reubens with Caramelized Onions

From: Vegetarian Times

Servings: Serves 6

Ingredients
Russian Dressing
4 tablespoons eggless mayonnaise
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 cup minced dill pickle
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Tempeh Reubens
1 8-ounce package tempeh
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari or low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon black peppercorns, coarsely crushed
1 tablespoon caraway seeds
2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 cups thinly sliced onions
Salt to taste
1 1/2 cups sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
4 to 6 slices hearty whole grain bread
1 bunch arugula, stemmed, rinsed and dried
Directions
1. To make Russian Dressing: Mix all ingredients in bowl until thoroughly combined. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
2. To make Tempeh Reubens: Using sharp knife, cut tempeh crosswise at 45-degree angle into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Combine 1 1/2 cups water, vinegar, tamari, peppercorns and caraway seeds in large saucepan. Add tempeh, spooning mixture over it. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
3. Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onions and salt, and cook, stirring often, over medium-low heat about 10 minutes, or until juicy. Increase heat to medium, and cook 5 minutes more, stirring often, until well browned. Remove pan from heat.
4. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and add tempeh slices, in batches if necessary. Cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
5. Warm sauerkraut in saucepan over medium-low heat.
6. To assemble sandwiches, spread each bread slice with 1 heaping tablespoon of Russian dressing. Layer bread with arugula, tempeh, sauerkraut and onions. Serve warm, either open-faced or topped with another slice of bread.
