Vegan Pastrami Recipe (Gourmet Vegan Dish)

This juicy and savory dish is loved by both vegans as well as non-vegans. And while most of the people turn vegan, they do not want to leave the taste of this savory dish at all. This vegan gourmet Reuben sandwich is completely plant-based but gives you the taste of the non-vegan version of it. to get the savory color to the dish, we will add in beetroot juice to the recipe.

The recipe consists of whole roasted celeriac as the base of the pastrami. This gives it a tender and delicate taste to the Reuben dish. Miso pickled cauliflower along with the tasty mustard sauce, brings the taste of this recipe to a different level. The burnt ends of pastrami give it the most exciting texture.

Vegan Pastrami Recipe

Like the Matzo Ball soup recipe, this one too is a little time taking recipe and you will require some
patience to prepare the dish completely. Specifically, the filler in this
recipe is a lot more time taking than the outer part of the sandwich. You might
find different varieties of recipes while you look for the vegan pastrami, but
mine is little different as my taste buds are little different.
