Meatless Fridays

Kyle is the sandwich king in our family. He loves making grilled sammies of any kind. This week's meal is so warm, gooey, cheesey, and filling that you'll never miss the meat! Our Meatless Friday meal is:

Grilled Vegetable Pannini

nice crusty ciabatta bread
hummus or marinara sauce
provolone or mozzarella cheese
your choice of veggies: zucchini, eggplant, tomato, red onion, spinach, etc...
balsamic vinegar

Place your chopped veggies into a ziplock bag and coat with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Let marinate for one hour then grill. Slice the bread thick enough to contain the ingredients and slather the insides with either hummus or marinara sauce. Build your sandwich and place on the grill. Weight down the sandwich with a brick wrapped in foil or a nice, heavy cast iron skillet and grill until golden.
Serve with homemade tomato soup or pasta salad.
