PANINI WITH LEMON-BASIL PESTO for DINNER.
Another great recipe from The Vegan Table By Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.
Two slices of La Brea Bakery - Whole Grain Loaf slathered with the lemon-basil pesto and stuffed with roasted red pepper, grilled red onions, zucchini, avocado, tomatoes, and drizzled with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
I don't own a panini maker, so instead I used a grill pan and then placed a heavy iron skillet to press the panini and to create grill marks.
Hard to eat.
It kept falling apart every time we took a bite but it was extremely tasty.
Makes me want to buy a panini maker just to make this sandwich.
The lemon in the pesto added a really great acidity to the panini.
I LOVE IT!!!
GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD for LUNCH.
This recipe is my own creation.
I used all the left over vegetables from the paninis, chopped them into small bite-size pieces and placed them over a bed of greens drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
One of THE best salads I've ever made.
