This vegan vegetable pesto panini is one of our favorite sandwiches because it has tasty, satisfying flavor.
Roasting vegetables adds so much depth and flavor.
In this version we use onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and asparagus.

Ingredients for Vegetable Panini
For this recipe you will need:
- Bell peppers
- Mushrooms: I use cremini, but choose your own favorite.
- Vegan mozzarella: One of my favorite vegan mozzarellas is Miyoko's. It tastes amazing and also melts pretty well. Plus I like that it's made with organic cashews and simple ingredients.
- Vegan pesto: Try homemade if desired.
- Whole grain bread: Or your own favorite.
The recipe makes a large amount of roasted vegetables, so feel free to decrease as desired.
