In my house, these sandwiches are a weekly thing. They make a quick and delicious lunch or dinner any day of the week and offers a burst of flavor with every bite!

Every ingredient that goes in this sandwich delivers a fantastic combination of fresh, seasonal veggies that are healthy and packed with nutritional goodness.


To begin with, slice the veggies lengthwise and saute until tender. Do not overcook them. Cook until the vegetables are just about tender but still have a little crunch left to them. Season to taste and set them aside.

You don’t need a panini maker to make these sandwiches. Just toast your bread slice and begin the assembly. Generously smear a good layer of homemade pesto on both the slices, top with a good portion of sauteed veggies, salad greens, feta cheese, and close. That’s it! Cut in half and enjoy!

As a bonus – these sandwiches can be customized entirely for picky eaters!


  • Adjust veggies to your taste. Other vegetables like mushrooms, tomato slices, zucchini can be added for extra flavor.
  • Instead of sauteing, feel free to grill the veggies.
  • Meat lovers – add a layer of grilled meat and enjoy.
  • Swap feta with a slice of mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
  • Substitute multigrain bread with ciabatta or any other sandwich bread.
