Healthy Veggie Panini


  • Makes 4.


  • 8 thin slices ciabatta bread (or any dense variety)
  • Soft butter
  • 1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 2 Tablespoons flat Italian parsley
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 2 small zucchini, shredded
  • 2 large Swiss chard leaves, julienned
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Prepare bread by spreading a light layer of butter on both sides of each slice. Sprinkle cheese on four slices and build upward with a little of each of the vegetables, sprouts, and parsley, topping it off with a slice of bread. Grill so vegetables will adhere to the melted cheese. Turn and grill on other side.
