Veggie Reuben

Makes two sandwiches


Flora Light

15 button mushrooms, sliced

2 cloves garlic (minced)

freshly ground black pepper

1/4 head red cabbage, thinly sliced

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

3 tbsp mayonnaise

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp horseradish sauce

4 slices rye or pumpernickel bread

4 slices reduced-fat edam cheese


The first step is to prepare all your ingredients. Heat two frying pans over a medium heat. Add a little Flora Light to each pan. In one pan, add the mushrooms, garlic and black pepper. Let cook for 5 minutes.

In the second pan, add the red cabbage, salt and pepper and let cook for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and let cook for 5 more minutes.

While they are cooking, mix up the dressing. Combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and horseradish sauce in a small bowl.

Spread Flora Light onto all four slices of the bread. Then spread the dressing over the bread. Add mushrooms to each sandwich. Add a slice of cheese on top of the mushrooms. Cover the cheese in cabbage. Add one more slice of cheese on top of the cabbage.

Option: Grill the sandwiches until the cheese melts.
