Grilled Pesto Veggiewich
The suggestions below are just that. Feel free to use any combination of grilled–or even roasted–vegetables and mix up the cheese and extra toppings as desired.


  • grilled vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, portobellos, asparagus, carrots. and onions (Leftovers are fine.)
  • multi grain bread, or a hearty bread of choice (I like to use Ezekiel’s sprouted multigrain bread.)
  • pesto, homemade or purchased
  • olive oil
  • mozzarella, havarti with dill, or another cheese of choice


  • tomato slices, sprouts, spinach


  1. Brush one side of bread slices with olive oil. On the non-oiled side, spread the pesto, and then layer grilled veggies, tomato or other optional vegetables, and a thin layer of cheese to cover.
  2. Place another piece of bread on top, olive oil-side up, and grill in a panini press for about three minutes or on a stove-top skillet or grill pan until both sides are golden and the cheese is melted.
