Plant-based Diaries: Entry #0006 – Paninis are Bae

Assembled veggie panini

Assembled veggie paniniYes, I am still yet holding on. I decided to dust off a panini press that we received for Christmas a few years ago. It is a shame that we have not used it sooner.

On my quest to have a good, hearty sandwich I could not help but recall my days of eating out. I went to a local grocer (no longer in business) and would indulge in a veggie panini. Because I cannot simply ride over there and grab one, I decided to give it whirl on my own. The results were yummy!


  • Wide Pan Flax bread
  • Sliced Zucchini (long way)
  • Daiya Mozzarella Shreds
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Sliced Red Bell Pepper
  • Sliced Onion
  • Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery spread
  • Baby Spinach


  1. Assemble your sandwich.
  2. Spread on butter.
  3. Place butter side down.
  4. Spread butter on other side.
  5. Close panini press.
  6. Check occasionally for crispness.
  7. Remove and devour.


The panini was soooo good! I made four of them in a row to prep for my lunch during the week. My husband even enjoyed his bite. I later made a salmon panini for him and a chicken panini for my fifteen-year-old. I  think we’re onto something!
