In my last post, Consume Yourself: My 350 Calorie Turkey Reuben, I promised a recipe for a vegetarian version of the Reuben. Today I’m going to fulfill that promise.
Since Kerri and Michelle are both vegetarians, they are always coming up with creative ways of turning non-vegetarian dishes into meatless ones.
Their version of the Reuben features sliced Smart Dogs and sweet pickle chips – perfect for the Reuben-loving vegetarian.
WHAT YOU NEED:
– 3 Lightlife Smart Dogs Veggie Protein Links
– 1 tbsp Olive Oil
– 6 tbsp Sauerkraut
– 2 oz. Swiss Cheese (about 6 rectangular slices, cut into squares)
– 12 Slices of Rubschlager Rye Cocktail Bread
– 12 Sweet Pickle Chips
– 6 tbsp 1000 Island dressing
**This recipe yields 6 sliders.
Slice soy dogs into quarters. (4 pieces per dog.)
Pour oil into frying pan.
Cook soy dogs in pan on medium heat until slightly brown on each side.
Remove soy dogs and place to the side.
Put sauerkraut in pan, warm on light heat.
Lay out slices of bread on baking pan. (We used toaster oven tray.)
Put 3 cheese squares on 6 of the bread slices. (The bottom halves.)
Place 2 pickle chips on top of the cheese on each slice.
Place 2 pieces of Smart Dog on top of the pickles.
Scoop a tablespoon of sauerkraut onto each sandwich.
Pour a tablespoon of 1000 Island dressing onto each sandwich.
Top off each sandwich with a slice of bread.
Place sliders in oven (or toaster oven) and cook at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until bread is toasty.
Remove from toaster and devour!
And that, my friends, is how you make the ultimate vegetarian Reuben! More vegetarian dishes to come. Hope you enjoy your Soy Dog Reuben Sliders as much as we did!
