Panini make over

IMG_1535

Living in the Middle East and being part of a family with Middle Eastern heritage, usually means eating fresh vegetables and foods.  In Saudi Arabia, fast food has really taken off in the past 20 years. Unfortunately many locals eat way too much fast food and are not advised of the health risks. When we first arrived in Saudi, there were hardly any fast food places, but when we left it seemed as if they were on ever corner!  For us, we went once in a great while and so when we arrived back to the states we ate allot of fast food. It was like a forbidden treat for all of us! After a year of that, the older children said no more! They were not raised eating processed food and so we started back to cooking fresh! As I have mentioned Foof eats out and then tries to recreate what she has eaten at home. It is cheaper, fresher and you can modify the ingredients to cut down on fat. After eating a Panini type sandwich the girls asked me to make it at home. We really enjoyed this, hope you do too.

Ingredients

5 Roma tomatoes chopped

1 onion chopped

3 cups fresh spinach

1 tsp. dry basil

salt to taste

olive oil for sauteing

grated mozzarella cheese

pesto of your choice

1 package Panini buns

Directions

Put a few spoons of olive oil in a pan and add onions and tomatoes. Saute until soft, add spinach and continue to saute. Add basil and salt to taste.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees

Cut buns open and place on baking tray

Spread pesto on one side and mozzarella on the other side of the bun

Place in the oven for approximately 5-10 minutes or until a little toasty.

Remove from oven and spread tomato mix on bun. Close bun and serve.

I also put a little turkey on the bun for those who want it.
