Our Grilled Vegetable and Torfurky Panini is a simple, scrumptious sandwich that is bursting with flavor. They keep fresh in the fridge for days – great travel food too!

Preparation and Assembly Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 panini sandwiches


2 packages Tofurky®, Hickory Smoked flavor (approx. 30 slices), or veggie ham if you prefer
1 zucchini, thinly sliced, lengthwise
1 yellow squash, thinly sliced, lengthwise
½ orange sweet pepper, thinly sliced
1 large Portobello mushroom, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
½ cup Vegenaise® Original Spread
4 Panini Rolls, sliced in half
1 package Simply Organic® Basil Pesto Seasoning Mix, or Italian Seasoning to taste.
½ large tomato, thinly sliced
4 slices Daiya® Provolone style slices (or shreds if you cannot find the slices), or Field Roast Chao Cheese - Creamy Original Flavor
4 – 8 leaves fresh basil
Oil for sautéing


  1. Sauté the Tofurky® slices in a small amount of oil to soften and moisten them. DO NOT OVERCOOK! Set aside in a covered bowl to keep them warm and moist.
  2. Sauté the zucchini, yellow squash, orange pepper, mushroom and onion with the Italian seasoning. Cook just a few minutes until the vegetables are just softened.
  3. Combine the Vegenaise® and the basil pesto seasoning in a small bowl. Spread the mixture on the inside top and bottom halves of the Panini rolls.
  4. Layer the sandwiches as follows: 
    • Tofurky slices (about 6 -7) folded and layered
    • Vegetables (including tomato)
    • Cheeze
  5.  Place sandwiches, open faced, on a cookie sheet. Broil on high for a few minutes until the cheeze is melted.
  6. Remove sandwiches and let cool slightly. Top with the fresh basil and then close the sandwiches. Cut in half.

    Makes 4 sandwiches.
