Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 15 min

Servings: 4


  • 1 can pineapple rings, thinly sliced in half

  • 1 medium red onion, half-moon thinly sliced

  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced

  • 1 bunch spinach

  • 1 loaf Italian bread

  • 6 oz thinly sliced vegan mozzarella cheese

  • 1 Ib deli roasted vegan "ham", thinly sliced (Tofurky or Yves)

  • 1/2 stick vegan butter

  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Spray a large sheet pan with non-stick spray.

  2. Season pineapples with salt and pepper. Place tomato, pineapple, and onion slices on a sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for 6-7 mins or until they are browned and caramelized.

  3. Season spinach with salt and black pepper to taste

  4. Build your panini by layering 1 slice of bread with 1 slice of cheese, ham, pineapple, onion, tomato, and fresh spinach, and then top everything with another slice of cheese, then cover with another piece of bread.

  5. Spray a Panini press with cooking spray and a bit of butter. Add sandwich, top with another bit of butter, and close press to cook sandwich until golden brown on both sides. If you don't have a panini press you can toast the sandwich in the oven and just press it together after toasting or you can use a big pan and press the sandwich down with a heavy skillet until pressed. Enjoy!
