Vegetarians rejoice! We have perfected a Reuben just for you using meaty portobello mushrooms and Sprouted Rye Bread that you are sure to love. If you don’t have Jeff’s Zauerkraut at your grocery store, use your favorite zippy kraut instead of this kosher sandwich. This recipe was created by Betty Holloway, M.N.S., the registered dietitian behind Nutriphoria. All nutritional information for this dish has been verified by Ms. Holloway.


  • Sprouted Rye Bread
  • 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 3 tbsp olive oil mayo
