Reuben Sandwich
In: Mains, Recipes1

Every once and a while Adam and I treat ourselves to A REUBEN SANDWICH!!! And – it’s totally plant-based, obviously. Build the sandwich the way you like it. For a grain free version, you can use collard greens as a wrap. Try making this Crunchy Slaw for an excellent side.

This recipe is for two sandwiches. I promise it will not disappoint.

A special thanks to Lettuce Love Cafe in Burlington, ON for the inspiration on this one!
