Vegetarian Reuben Sandwich Recipe

Reuben Sandwich with Vegetable Chips and Dill Pickle

A traditional Reuben Sandwich is made with Pastrami (smoked beef), Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut, Rye Bread, and Russian Dressing.  

The Vegetarian Reuben Sandwich is made with the same ingredients except the beef.

Vegetarian Deli Slices replace the Pastrami, with Vegetarian Ham Slices, Turkey Slices, or Hickory Smoked Deli Slices.



To replace the Pastrami, use either Lightlife or Tofurky brand deli slices.

1-2 Slices: Lightlife Vegetarian Deli Ham Slices or Deli Turkey Slices, or Tofurky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices.

2 Slices Caraway Seeded Rye, Seedless Rye, or Pumpernickel Bread.

1-2 Slices Vegan Swiss Cheese.  If you eat dairy, use Swiss Cheese.

Thousand Island Dressing

1/4 Cup Sauerkraut

Margerine or Cooking Oil


  1. Preheat large skillet, or griddle on low heat.  If the heat is too high, the bread will burn.
  2. Lightly coat one side of both bread slices with margarine or oil.  The oiled side will be placed in the skillet.
  3. Spread non-oiled sides with Thousand Island Dressing. Place layers of deli slices, cheese, and sauerkraut on one slice.
  4. Put both sides together, and grill sandwich about 15 minutes each side, or until browned.
  5. Serve hot.
