This is my adaptation of a healthier version of the Reuben sandwich from It is totally vegetarian and could easily be made vegan. Don't let the dressing ingredients scare you - you could also use Thousand Island Dressing, but I think this version removes the need to buy it. This is a sandwich that is truly a sum of its parts - they meld beautifully and you won't notice the individual ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast bread if desired.
  2. Layer deli slices, cheese, and sauerkraut on one slice.
  3. On the other, spread ketchup, relish, and mayo.
  4. Top one slice with the other.
  5. This would probably be good grilled but I eat mine like this.

This sandwich is great with Tempeh, and NO yukky Miracle Whip please. I would not like the low fat cheese because you need fat in your diet to stay healthy. I like this sandwich grilled for better flavor. The Sno-Isle Co-op in Everett WA makes a sandwich like this. Leaflady

I've made sandwiches like this for years... but they HAVE to be on rye bread! I use Worthington brand meatless Corned Beef slices and bottled Thousand Island dressing. Yum...
