This weekend I decided to clean out my fridge and use up all the produce that I had, so I can stock up again ;-) I found onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, whole wheat pita bread and a bar of pepper jack cheese. So what can you make all these?? A lot.. but ended up making paninis. Here's my recipe.
Ingredients (makes 1 sandwich):
Whole wheat pita bread - 2
Red onion - 1 medium, thinly sliced
Mushrooms - 5-6, thinly sliced
Tomato - 1 small, cut into thin circles
Pepper jack cheese - 2 slices
Mozzarella cheese - 3 tbsp grated (I used Kraft fat-free grated moz.)
Salt and Pepper - to taste
- Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a pan, add onions and saute till golden and slightly caramelized, takes about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove and keep aside.
- In the same pan, add mushrooms and saute till done. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and keep aside.
- Spray, the grill pan with non-stick cooking spray, toast the pita bread on one side. Add the jack cheese, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, moz. cheese and place the second pita on top.
- Put some kind of weight (I used a foil covered brick.. bought it for a buck in Home depot) and grill for about 2 minutes each side.
