Great Ways to Use Sauerkraut
Make a Vegan Reuben
To make an epic plant-based reuben sandwich, you’re going to need sauerkraut, vegan Russian dressing and some quality vegan cheese. Use any kind of mock meat you like and gourmet sauerkrauts to make it fancy.
Another alternative for tempeh is tofu but before you use tofu in the recipe, press it down to get rid of excess moisture first so it will be more flavor dense. Check out our top picks for the best tofu press if you’re considering to buy one.
Use It in Soups
Sauerkraut makes a great addition to brothy soups. Combine it with hearty vegetables like potatoes and carrots, and enjoy your soup with a big hunk of crusty bread.
You can use sauerkraut as a filling for pierogies, or you can saute your pierogies with sauerkraut and onions to serve. If you do use it as a filling, it’s wonderful by itself or mixed with mashed potatoes and mushrooms.
