Vegetable Panini

Pin It

My husband was craving a vegetable panini for lunch one beautiful, sunny afternoon so at his request I concocted this. We had so many leftover vegetables hanging around so it was perfect. We LOVED the flavor of this veggie combo and are craving it again already!

Vegan (with dairy-free cheese), gluten-free (with gluten-free bread)

Ingredients
Roasted red pepper
Zucchini
Mushroom
Roma tomato
Spinach
Onion
Fresh basil
Shredded mozzarella
Feta
Bread

Directions
Slice zucchini lengthwise in 1/4" thick strips. Saute zucchini and mushrooms in a pan over medium heat for a couple minutes until slightly softened.
On a griddle pan, assemble paninis keeping the heat turned off until it's assembled.
On a slice of bread add a thin layer of cheese. I use a mixture of mozzarella and feta.
Layer half the veggies, followed by a thin layer of mozzarella, the remaining veggies, and the last layer of mozzarella on top.
Tip: I layer it like this (cheese-veggies-cheese-veggies-cheese) when I have so many components because the cheese acts as a "glue" to hold it all together.
Top with a slice of bread and heat over medium heat until browned on both sides and cheese is melted.
