Deli Style Panini


We’re all so busy these days we don’t often get the chance for a lovely long lunch break away from our desks. This deli-cious panini with colourful roasted vegetables will brighten up your day and ensure you look forward to your Al-desko lunch all morning!


2 Panini Rolls
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 small (cubed) aubergine
1/2 medium (deseeded) yellow bell pepper
1 medium courgettes, chopped
4 cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 slices (75g) Mozzarella cheese
black pepper, freshly ground


  • Prepare aubergine by cutting into 1½ cm slices then cube.
  • Cube the courgette and slice the yellow pepper and half the tomatoes.
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add the aubergine, courgette and pepper and fry for 8-10 minutes, until tinged with brown, adding the tomatoes in the last couple of minutes, then drizzle over the balsamic vinegar.
  • Meanwhile preheat the grill. Place the cut paninis on the grill rack cooked side up and toast until just tinged with brown, remove.
  • Drizzle the remaining olive oil onto the cut side of the panini.
  • Place vegetables on top of the untoasted panini base and top with the sliced mozzarella, place back on the grill along with the up turned tops.
  • Grill until the top is toasted and the mozzarella is just melting. Finish with a few torn leaves of basil and a good twist of cracked black pepper.
