Avocado Reuben

Do you love avocado like I do? Then you will love this sandwich! Well, you should also like sauerkraut. And thousand island dressing. Anyway, this sandwich is good! And it doesn’t take any time at all to make. I used good wheat bread instead of rye (can’t stand the caraway seeds!). My 8 year old thought it was okay. I made vegan thousand island to use (vegan mayo, ketchup, pickles, pickle juice, salt and pepper).

Avocado Reuben
(Vegan Cooking for Carnivores, Roberto Martin)

serves 2


4 slices good quality rye bread
Thousand Island dressing or store-bought vegan dressing, as needed
1 firm avocado, halved, pitted, removed from the skin, and thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup sauerkraut or store-bought, drained
1 firm tomato, thinly sliced and patted dry with paper towels


Lightly toast the bread and spread all 4 slices with the dressing. Distribute the avocado slices evenly on 2 slices of the bread. Season the avocado with salt and pepper. Spread an even amount of the sauerkraut over the avocado and top with 2 to 3 slices of tomato. Top the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices and cut each sandwich, corner to corner, with a sharp knife. Serve with additional dressing on the side.
