Mediterranean Style Paninis

It’s a much healthier version of the classic panini, thanks to the whole wheat bread, less cheese and the addition of veggies — and if you want even more veggies a light spinach salad would go great with this dinner.

  • Whole wheat bread 2 slices per panini - I like Rudi's organic flax seed bread
  • Feta cheese 2 oz per panini
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • olives chopped (use 3-4 olives per panini)
  • salt pepper, garlic cloves, oregano, crushed red pepper, or any herbs & spices/seasonings you like


  • Chop your veggies, and slice the cheese into approx. 2 oz slices
  • Layer your panini: cheese first, then toppings (as much as you like!). Top with salt/pepper/oregano/crushed red pepper -- basically any spices you like.
  • Grill your panini! I used a panini press, but you can also use a grill pan if you don't have a panini press.


If you add only 1 oz of cheese to your panini, you will end up with 241 calories per panini, 9.3g fat, 620mg sodium, 33.6g carbs, 6g fiber, 5g sugar, and 13g protein
