Grilled Tofu Reuben


Grilled Tofu

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp oregano


  • 2 slices rye bread
  • 1 tbsp thousand island dressing
  • 3/4 cup sauerkraut
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese


  • Slice tofu into 12-14 even slices and use a towel to press out excess water
  • In a bowl, mix together garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, dijon mustard, and herbs.
  • Put the tofu in a small sealable container and pour the mixture over it.
  • Seal the container and shake gently to evenly distribute mixture. Allow to marinate for up to 1 hour.
  • Lightly oil a baking sheet and spread the tofu out on the sheet.
  • Place under the broiler until you can see the soy sauce starting to caramelize and the tofu darkens (~4-5 minutes)
  • Take the baking sheet out and flip the tofu slices over with a fork.
  • Broil again for another 4-5 minutes.
  • Assemble the sandwich by toasting the bread, spreading the dressing on one slice, and adding the 6 slices of tofu, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese on top.
  • Before adding the top slice of bread, return the sandwich to the broiler briefly to melt the Swiss cheese on top.
