Grilled Vegetable Panini

I don't use my electric grill often. So i searched online for some grilling recipes and found about the panini. It's basically a sandwich that's grilled. The sandwich can be made with any vegetable or meat of choice. I decided to make mine with grilled veggies and goat cheese.


Bread slices - 8
Onion - 1 (sliced)
Green bell pepper/Capsicum - 1 (sliced)
Mint chutney - as needed
Tomato ketchup - as needed
Chilli sauce - as needed
Cooking spray/oil for grilling (butter can also be used)
Goat cheese - as needed


Heat the grill to a medium temperature. When hot, spray with cooking spray and grill the sliced veggies. Meanwhile spread mint chutney on one slice of bread and ketchup on another. Add goat cheese to the slice with mint chutney and place the grilled veggies on top. Sprinkle chilli sauce and cover with the slice with ketchup. Grill the sandwich till crispy and brown on both sides. If you have an open grill place a heavy vessel on top of the sandwich to press it down. Serve by itself or with more ketchup.

Variations: Any number of veggies like zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, different color pepper can be grilled and added. Also different kinds of cheeses can be added.

Note: Goat cheese has a strong raw flavor and many people might not like it. It can be substituted with mozzarella or cottage cheese.

Thats just great! Thank you so much!

Mandira of Ahar is doing the Winter Roundup. After April 10th, announce on your blog about you hosting the event. I will announce on my blog too.

The only guidelines are these.
- Entires should have a picture of the plant/vegetable they grew along with the recipe. They cannot just post the plant's picture or the recipe picture

End date of GBP Summer (April -October) 2007 is October1st and you do roundup on October 10th. Thats all.
You need to have an entry for yourself.

When you announce give links to the first GBP Announcement. Thats all.
