Packed with sauteed vegetables and avocado, this panini recipe proves vegetarian sandwiches can be just as hearty as their meat-laden deli counterparts
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.
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.
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.
