The Beet Reuben

IMG_8211.jpg

This is the classic reuben sandwich with a vegetarian twist of using beets instead of pastrami. All of the unique flavors of a reuben are there, but the beets make this sandwich over the top delicious in combination with the sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and dressing.

Makes 1 sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of marble rye bread

  • 1 slice of swiss cheese

  • 2 tablespoons of drained sauerkraut (more or less, depending on preference)

  • 1/4 cup of sliced cooked beets

  • 1 tablespoon of thousand island dressing 

 

Optional: tomato slices, arugula

Instructions:

 

1) Put both slices of bread in a skillet on low to medium heat. Add the swiss cheese on one slice of bread. 

2) On the other slice of bread, spread the sauerkraut and beets on it.

 

3) Let the two slices of bread heat up slowly until the swiss cheese starts to melt. Take the bread slices off of the heat and put on a plate.

4) Add the tomato slices, arugula, and dressing, and then close up the sandwich.

5) Slice the sandwich in half and enjoy!
