In a hurry? Need some thing quick but still want to stay healthy?
This 5 minute vegetarian panini is GREAT because you can pre-prepare 3 different kinds at the beginning of the week, and after a few minutes on a panini maker; they’re ready to eat!
If you pre-prepare all the ingredients you want on your panini, and keep them individually ready-to-eat in your fridge- it makes for a quick and healthy meal on the go.
I made this panini last night in less then 5 minutes and it took me 2 minutes to heat it up today on my pink panini maker. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think sandwiches get any faster then that.
Fast, easy, and delicious; a perfect combination for anyone with a busy schedule!
These baby gourmet grilled cheese panini’s will take your breath away. Using your pink panini maker (or which ever color panini maker you own, even though pink is the best color of course) eliminates the time it would normally take to bake them in the oven.
Also, using a panini maker eliminates the need to fry them in a pan. This makes these cute little babies much healthier too.
This took a total of 10 minutes, and was worth every second!
Sauted Portabella Mushrooms
Avocado Feta Spread
Caramalize your onions
Saute the portabella mushrooms in all natural honey (which is a sweet delicous substitute for oil)
Spread the bottom half of the chibatta bread with pesto, and the top half with avocado feta spread. You can use what ever spread or dip you like, i just happened to find the Avocado-pesto spread at the farmers market and fell in love with it.
Layer your cheese, sauted portabella mushrooms and caramalized onlions on the chibatta slices
Toss them in your panini maker, and vuala- you have delicious baby gourmet grilled cheese paninis that will impress all your guests!
I paired my mini panini’s with my 2 minute side italian salad, and a home-made fruit smoothie.
