50 States of MoFo: Nebraska: Runzas

Nebraska has been the secret headquarters of American veganism for many years.   At the time that George Burke wrote his very important vegan cookbook, Simply Heavenly, his monastic community was located in Geneva, Nebraska.  (They later moved to California, and are now located in New Mexico.) More recently, the prominent vegan cookbook author, Isa Moskowitz, moved to Omaha, Nebraska.  What is it about Nebraska?

The runza is often associated with Nebraska, and it seemed only right to make Isa's recipe for seitan & sauerkraut runzas for our Nebraska post.  These were easy and completely delicious.  Highly recommended!

Nebraska must have a special fondness for sauerkraut.  In addition to runzas, it claims to be the birthplace of the Reuben sandwich.  By the way, if you've never made sauerkraut, you should!  It's so simple.  Sandor Katz will show you how:
