Grilled Veggie Panini



4 slabs of Sourdough bread

1-2 tomatoes
1 zucchini
2 Portabella mushrooms
½ oz. vegan butter / Earth Balance
1 oz. veganaise
Handful of fresh basil
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, touch of cayenne




Sandwiches are my favorite. This is one of the few vegetarian dishes I'd make myself when cooking my way through college at a family-owned joint, and it's still a "go-to" today. You'll want to start by chopping up an onion, a zucchini, a tomato, and a portobello mushroom in equal-sized pieces, about the size of a nickel. Get a little olive oil going in the pan until hot. I like to add a little fresh garlic and basil beforehand. Add the veg and sauté until scorched on each side. Toss in some sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little cayenne if you're feeling it. Remove from heat and get another pan going. Grill up two hunks of bread of your choice, coated with a knob of Earth balance spread or other vegan butter until golden brown. As the bread cooks, add a little vegan cheese to melt, and slather one side of the bread with a generous layer of vegenaise. Sprinkle a little "nooch" if you have it.

When bread is ready, remove from heat and top with grilled veg. Assemble your sandwich, line it up with either oven-baked fries, sweet potato tots, or simple chips or crisps.
