Packed with yummy sauteed veggies, melty cheese, and creamy avocado, you'll want to eat this grilled panini for brunch, lunch, or dinner.


  • 2 teaspoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 cup sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped kale, stems removed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium avocados
  • 8 pieces thick wheat bread
  • 4 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese, if desired



1. Heat butter or oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and sauté until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and kale, and sauté until wilted and warmed through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt.
2. Mash avocado flesh in a bowl with a fork. Spread some avocado on each bread slice. Top 4 slices with vegetables and cheese. Place remaining bread on top.
3. Place sandwiches in a preheated panini press or frying pan over medium high-heat. Cook about 3 minutes until bread is browned on the outside.
