I didn't exactly grow up eating Reubens, but my parents love them. When I told them I was going to make a version with mushrooms, they shuddered. Seriously, they stared at me in disbelief. Mushrooms? Surely they didn't hear me correctly.
Well, I don't know if mine could really be classified as a Reuben sandwich, but my non-vegan husband ate two. That is testament in and of itself.
Cruelty Free Reuben Sandwiches
Pumpernickel or rye bread
Sauerkraut (I like Bavarian style)
Sliced vegan cheese
Toast the bread, then slather it with mayonnaise. Layer the mushrooms, then the sauerkraut, then top with a slice of cheese. Broil until the cheese gets melty. Serve. Enjoy!
