Enjoy the reuben, excuse the spelling!
Something about when I write something larger than life I tend to overlook the obvious. My photoshop skills are nowhere good enough to switch around those letters, but I guarantee the skills in the kitchen used to make this dish of vegan heaven way out weigh my cover photo mishap. Better than your favorite vegan restaurant reuben (and non vegan reuben) this sandwich will most certainly satisfy your comfort food cravings…
