  • First you will need to make the Plant Based Meatloaf from the blog. The link is in the notes of this recipe.
  • Next you will need to make the Thousand Island Dressing (recipe below).
  • Sauerkraut
  • Avocado slices
  • Sprouted grain or whole wheat bread, toasted

Thousand Island Dressing

  • 1/2 cup cashews soaked in water for at least 10 minutes (75g)
  • 1 dried date, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes - pit taken out
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste (20g)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water (175ml)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pickles (90g)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion (20g)
  • Few turns cracked black pepper


Thousand Island Dressing

  1. Drain and discard the water from the cashews and place the cashews, date (without the soaking water), tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, salt and water in the blender and blend until creamy and smooth.

  2. Pour the dressing into a mixing bowl and add the pickles, onion and black pepper. Stir until well combined and refrigerate.

Meatloaf Reuben

  1. After you have your Plant Based Meatloaf and your Thousand Island Dressing made, the next step is to assemble the sandwich. Toast two pieces of bread (or don't toast it, up to you!), then spread both pieces with a generous slather of Thousand Island Dressing. 

  2. Add a slice of Meatloaf to one side of bread, followed by some sauerkraut. Drizzle dressing on top of the sauerkraut and then top with avocado. Top your sandwich with the other piece of bread and watch your man chow down!
