Sauerkraut casserole with sundried tomatoes and seitan

  1. Empty the can of sauerkraut into an ovenproof baking dish.
  2. Separate it a bit with a fork so that it is spread all over the dish.
  3. Open the frozen potatoes and mix well into the sauerkraut.
  4. Cut the sun dried tomatoes and seitan or tempeh into bite sized pieces and mix into the sauerkraut potato mixture.
  5. Pour the soy cream or soy milk into a bowl and grate most of the soy cheese into the milk.
  6. Add cayenne and black pepper to the milk.
  7. Pour the milk and spices over the sauerkraut/potato mixture and mix well.
  8. Grate the last little bit of soy cheese on top of the mixture and garnish with slices of the 2nd apple.
  9. Place in the oven to bake.
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes on a medium oven or until crispy golden brown.

We find this meal tastes nice with a whole wheat baguette and a fresh salad.

    Would you be able to provide clarification of package sizes suitable for this recipe? Nowadays, you can buy pretty large packages and cans of things at Costco, but for a recipe like this, I’m sure the proportions would need to be right for it not to be dry or lacking enough flavor. Thanks!

    Hi Marlee,
    Thank you for your questions.
    Sauerkraut comes packaged in 1 pound packages, and I used a 1&1/2 pound of frozen grated potatoes.
    So- it us 1 pound sauerkraut, and 1&1/2 pounds grated potatoes.
    It’s a very good recipe that we often enjoy over the cold months. It’s quick and easy to bring together and very filling.

    Hi. I notice you say ‘garnish with slices of the 2nd apple’ – but no apples in the ingredients. I take it most of the two apples should be mixed in at some point? Could you clarify please? Thanks!
