Blackened Tempeh Sandwich

I ate a lot of snick-snacky things today including Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos, Spicy Wasabi Rice Crackers, Snickerdoodle cookies and more date brownies. Not very good for my first day off the diet, huh? Need to slow down...

Lunch was fantastic. I made this sandwich using blackened tempeh (dredge thin slices of tempeh in cajun seasonings and pan fry in a little olive oil on both sides until browned), cashew cheese spread, lettuce, tomato, sauerkraut and thousand island sauce (vegenaise, ketchup, capers, dijon, pepper). Yum! It's kinda sort of like a reuben except I used french bread instead of pumpernickel.

Awesome sammie! I've always been crazy for anything blackened.

I enjoyed all your detox food posts. I miss crispy snacks when I diet too!

Oops I think my comment didn't work. If my last one went through, sorry for duplicating...

What kind of cashew cheese spread is that? Did you buy it or make it?

That sandwich looks delicious, I'm going to try my hand at making one...although I'm not so good with tempeh.

veggievixen,
Thanks! It was a great experience.

Diann,
Crispy snacks can't be beat after you've been crunching on raw veggies and fruits for weeks!

Eric,
The cashew cheese I used is a recipe from the Uncheese Cookbook called "Gooda".
Don't worry about the tempeh, just make sure to cut them in nice thin slices. The cajun seasonings and frying up will make them taste great!
