Spinach & Tomato Panini Recipe (Vegan)

Craving a cheesy sandwich? Try this simple and delicious panini! With just a few ingredients you can create a complex meal in minutes. The cool tomato, gooey cheese and slightly bitter spinach melt together with the balsamic vinegar and form a perfect balance of textures and flavors. I suggest using mozzarella-style cheese, but feel free to experiment with any of your favorite vegan slices. 


2 slices of bread

3 leaves of spinach

2 slices tomato

4 slices of vegan cheese

Vegan butter

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


-Warm a pan over medium heat (or if you using a panini maker, turn it on).

-Spread vegan butter over one side of each bread slice and then set aside with the buttered-side down.

-Place the cheese on each slice of bread, followed by tomato, spinach and balsamic vinegar.

-Close the sandwich and then place directly into your heated pan or panini maker.

-If you do not have a panini maker, simply use a plate or another heavy pan to press down on top of the sandwich. Be sure to flip it over after a minute or two to ensure it cooks evenly.

-Allow to cool before eating.
