Veg Panini

One of my all time favorite. Made at home, the easiest healthy sandwich. If want to eat simple, healthy food which can be made when you are in a hurry .. This would be the rice. Don't scratch your head if you do not have a Panini maker once can make it on the griddle pan which has lines in it .. Tomato Basil Soup would go very will with a hot panini.. yum!!!
