The last sandwich I posted to the blog was back in the fall; when I made an apple onion relish, and put it on a baguette with some cashew butter and purple kale.
I used to work at a deli, so I definitely have had my hands on a sandwich or two, and I’m telling you, making sandwiches never gets old for me.
I tend to bounce around to different breads (I especially love to use bagels and naan) but when it comes to paninis, I really can’t go any other way than with sourdough.
I brushed two pieces with olive oil.
Turned them around, and added some mashed avocado.
Added some kale.
I tossed some pintos with turmeric, pepper flakes, apple cider vinegar and maple syrup; the beans are the glowing factor in this panini.

As always, feel free to explore other ingredients that you might like to add and or replace with what I did, and, as always, reach for those plants.
Glowing Bean Panini
I'll call anything with turmeric in it glowing.
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 1 avocado mashed
- 1/2 cup chopped kale
- 3 tbsp olive oil
Glowing Pinto Beans
- 1/2 cup pinto beans
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Mash the avocado, and combine all ingredients for the glowing pinto bean mixture.
Brush the sourdough with some olive oil, flip over, and start building the panini.
Brush a skillet or griddle with olive oil, and heat over medium/high. Place the panini down, and press a large pan or tray down on the panini. Cook for four minutes each side.
