Jackfruit Reuben Dip, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan

Yesterday I shared my latest jackfruit creation, a Reuben sandwich.  It’s everything a Reuben should be, just without meat, dairy and eggs.

In testing the recipes several times, I had plenty of opportunity to use the ingredients in other forms.  I used the corned jackfruit as burrito filling, I mixed it in with potato hash.  I spread the swiss cheese spread on carrot chips, crackers, celery.  And the thousand island dressing has become a staple in our house, a jar of it ready for veggie dip or salad dressing.

But then I recalled seeing a Reuben casserole of sorts at a potluck.  I decided that my variation would make a delicious dip, not quite a casserole but yet warm and bubbly,  and set out to make that happen.

It was so much easier than I could have imagined.  I simply put all of the ingredients of the sandwich, minus the bread, together in a small crockpot and heated on low until it was hot.  It’s that easy!  And oh-my-goodness, delicious.  I was told once at a blog conference to never use the word ‘delicious’ to describe food.  But by golly, it fits here.  This is delicious and very Reuben-y. That’s the best fancy descriptor I’ve got for this one.

I served this with tortilla chips, but think it would also be great on crostinis, with veggie sticks or crackers.

    I still haven’t tried jackfruit, even though I heard great things about your gfe retreat recipe. Thanks for sharing this a Gluten-free Wednesdays. It looks delicious, and I don’t even like sauerkraut.
