Recipe - Vegetarian Ruebens

If you bought rye bread to make my vegetarian patty melts, you may be wondering what else to do with it (except toast, which is yummy), so here is a vegetarian version of a Rueben sandwich. (Recipe is mainly for those who don't know what a Rueben is.)

makes 1

2 slices rye bread
Soft butter substitute, safe for cooking, used to grill sandwich
Sauerkraut*, about 1/2 cup (or to taste)
Thousand Island salad dressing
Swiss cheese, or Swiss-style soy cheese, 1 slice

Butter outsides of bread. Spread one slice with dressing. Place cheese and sauerkraut on top. Grill on griddle. Flip carefully - sauerkraut will try to escape.

If you thought a Rueben required fatty, unhealthy meat to be tasty, try it this way and be pleasantly surprised! We've also ordered Ruebens without meat at restaurants (diners, usually) that didn't have any vegetarian items on the menu.

Delicious with sweet potato oven fries, to get that diner experience, but healthier.


* I use Claussen brand sauerkraut, which is crispy and refrigerated - heat for 30 seconds in microwave before putting on sandwich.

There's a restaurant down the street that makes a tempeh reuben (better still is their tempeh BBQ sandwich).

I just found your site and gave it a link back.

Katz's in Austin makes a really tasty avocado reuben. The creamy avocado balances out the tangy sauerkraut. Very yummy!

using tempeh for the rueben in place of meat is also great and makes it a little more hearty and filling. you should try its great!!
