This thick meaty and cheesy Reuben sandwich is a North American classic at delicatessens. Though similar to other sandwiches like smoked meat sandwiches, the use of saurkraut in this version gives it a kick and the swiss cheese melts perfectly into the sandwich! 

All you need to do to make this vegan recipe is spread the Russian dressing on rye bread, stack your vegan meat and cheese and toast in a buttered pan until warm and melty.

    One thing about me is I love a good sandwich. This one really hit the spot.

  • Just tried making this sandwich tonight. It’s been a year since going vegan and use to have a Reuben from my deli around the block so have high expectations lo It was really good but I think I need to find better seitan slices or better vegan meat at stores that mimic corned beef? Maybe Candice you can mention which one you used to make this? The Russian dressing was amazing and still recommend this recipe

    Somehow I had everything I needed for this on hand and made it and it was sooo perfect. Definitely a type of sandwich I missed since going vegan.
