Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare Russian dressing: Whisk mayonnaise and ketchup in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in capers and pickle (or relish).
  • To prepare sandwiches: Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, 4 minutes. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until it has wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a plate.
  • Coat the pan with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and return to medium heat. Add the bread; divide cheese equally among the slices. Divide sauerkraut between 2 slices and divide the spinach mixture between the other 2 slices; cook until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer sandwich halves to a cutting board. Divide the dressing between the spinach halves. Carefully place the sauerkraut halves on top. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.

    This looks amazing. I love regular Reubens but am always trying to 'healthy' things up, so this is great.

    Misslizzi thank you for the photo credit on the Russian dressing.
    Not low fat but all organic and no animal fat in the entire recipe.
    Thank you for the inspirational idea.
    I would like to see more wonderful recipes from your collection and by the looks of the fans here I bet they would too.

    This sandwich looks awesome. I've been a vegetarian for so long that I've never had a real reuben, but hey, I also think this one could stand on its own as a tasty sammie!

    Sounds delicious to me and I love reubens - one of my favorite sammies. I like the option of having a veggie version. Great post - thanks so much!
