    Default Avocado Reuben

    I found this on PETA's site and made it last week. I loved rueben's when I wasn't veg, loved the spicy/salty tang of the sandwich which was/is provided by the sauerkraut, mustard and dressing.. Be sure to use a really low heat as to not burn the bread (like I did, so I ate it anyways and made another)

    Avocado Reuben:

    2 slices rye or pumpernickel bread
    Thousand Island dressing (recipe follows)
    1/2 avocado, pitted, peeled, and mashed
    1/4 cup sauerkraut

    Spread one slice of bread with some mustard, the other slice with Thousand Island dressing.

    Place the bread slices, dry side down, in a lightly oiled skillet. Top one slice with avocado, and the other with sauerkraut. Over medium heat, grill the sandwich until lightly browned and hot, about 5 minutes. Put the sandwich halves together and enjoy!

    Makes 1 sandwich.

    Thousand Island Dressing:

    1 cup vegan mayonnaise
    1/3 cup ketchup
    1/2 tsp. onion powder
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. garlic powder
    3 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
    2 Tbsp. minced stuffed green olives

    Blend the ingredients thoroughly in a mixing bowl or blender.

    Makes 2 cups

    Right here, right now



    Thank you for posting this. I was never keen on reubens when I was omni but this version looks too good to pass up.

    I am SO making this. *licks lips*
    It's vegan, which means it's vegetarian which means there's nothing unheathy in it. -- my guy trying to explain vegan junkfood.

    thanks - never heard of reubens before, must be an American thing, but it sounds great!
