Similar to a Rueben sandwich, but without meat. This toasted sandwich features sauerkraut, smoked cheddar, Thousand Island dressing and tomatoes on rye bread.
i make my veggie ruebans with sliced tofu (pressed/drained) browned in soy butter & a few tbs of garlic powder. I layer the tofu over rye bread, 1000 island dressing, warmed sauerkraut & swiss cheese... it tastes awesome and satisfies my meat eating bf - 09 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I thought these were okay but nothing I would make again. A classic reuben calls for Swiss cheese, not smoked cheddar. I followed the recipe exactly but think it would have been better with the Swiss. Also, I question why the cheese is shredded and mixed with the sauerkraut and dressing--seems like a lot of extra work. Even though this recipe omits the meat, the procedure for making the sandwich could still be followed--put the dressing on the inside of the bread and then layer the cheese, sauerkraut and tomato. I may try it that way, using Swiss cheese. - 15 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
So yummy! What a great idea. I did use swiss and layered the ingredients instead of mixing them for ease. - 04 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
