Two Peas and Their Pod: Grilled Vegetable Paninis

Friday, September 26, 2008

Grilled Vegetable Paninis



Making paninis is one of our favorite "Go To" dinners. They are fast, easy, and healthy...as long as you watch your topping choices:) We use whole wheat ciabatta bread and stuff them full of grilled vegetables. Josh usually throws on a few slices of turkey and some cheese, but I just like plain veggies. I do slather on some balsamic vinegar and sometimes pesto.

This time we used grilled purple and white eggplant. Have you had a white eggplant? They are fabulous! Kalyn, of
Kalyn's Kitchen, gave us some fresh produce from her amazing garden and white eggplants were in the bag of goodies. I recommend you try them. They are delicious. Thanks Kalyn!

Sorry, I got side tracked, we also used gril
led zucchini, yellow squash, onions, roasted orange peppers, artichokes, tomatoes, and fresh basil. I think I got my 5 a Day and then some:)



The sandwiches start out HUGE, but thanks to our Krupps Panini maker they are soon smashed down to a compact sandwich with loads of flavor!







I also made a big batch of chunky vegetable pasta sauce to put in our freezer! This will come in handy when we are craving good veggies this winter!

You guys seriously we busy while I was gone! I can't believe how much I missed. You guys are some of the busiest bakers out there.

This all looks just fantastic. I so love food like this that dresses up the veggies into something comforting yet gourmet. It just looks like heaven!
