Okay so I was in the mood for something cheesy. Well, when am I not? But anyway.
So my cheese cravings lead to a craving for a cheesy, hearty panini.
But I didn’t have a panini press. Or good cheese. So when I remembered a post on everybodylikessandwiches where she made her own panini press, I decided to make my own faux panini press too. And I improvised with the cheese using cheese slices (no judging). Which lead to this sandwich.
It couldn’t be simpler – I sauteed some spinach, broccoli and mushrooms and put them between two bread slices with some cheese and garlic butter.
You could use whatever vegetable combination you want but I think greens and mushrooms are the best in this type of sandwich. Next time though, I think I’ll add in some corn…. And if you’re not a garlic person, unlike me, feel free to omit the garlic in the butter. And of course, you some shredded mozzarella or parmesan would probably be much better in this, if you have it!
Vegetable & Cheese Panini
- Two slices Bread
- 1 Cheese Slice/ around 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella or parmesan
- 1 teaspoon butter mixed with 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 cup spinach & 4 button mushrooms (or any other vegetables)
- 1/2 onion
- salt, black pepper, oregano, chili flakes
When both sides are toasted and the cheese has melted, remove from the heat.
