There is officially a love affair going on, between my panini press and I. It is the best think I have added into my kitchen in a long time. When I have some left over ingredients that I don't know what to do with, they seem to always work perfectly, cooked into a panini. I have my two staples that I always make, cheddar apple, and southwestern, but I have been wanting to add a new panini to my menu. With my recent leftovers of feta and olives, and hummus on sale two for one, it was Greek style panini time!
What you need:
2 slices of bread
6-8 pitted Kalamata olives
Your favorite hummus
Half a tomato, sliced
What to do:
Assemble your sandwich with the hummus spread on, feta, olives, and tomato
Put everything into the panini press and cook until golden brown on the outside
I ate my panini with a side salad.
This panini was s incredibly delicious! It tasted like I ordered it right out of a sandwich shop. The hummus was creamy, and added an element of protein from the chick peas. The olives and feta were briny, and the tomato was hot a juicy. All the Greek flavors came together perfectly all in a hot and crispy crust.
What is your favorite panini combination? Will you try out this Greek style one?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
