Recipe Ingredients for Panini With Artichoke Hearts, Spinach and Red Peppers

6 ounces baby spinach
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
12 oz artichoke hearts, sliced
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1 Freshly ground pepper
1 large sweet red pepper, roasted and sliced
1/4 lb Gruyere, thinly sliced
8 slices whole grain bread

Recipe Directions for Panini With Artichoke Hearts, Spinach and Red Peppers

  1. Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice water. Add the spinach to the boiling water and blanch for 10 to 20 seconds. Transfer to the ice water to cool for a few minutes, then drain and squeeze out excess water. Chop coarsely.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds, and stir in the artichoke hearts. Stir for a few minutes, until the artichoke hearts are beginning to color, and add the thyme leaves and the spinach. Toss together and season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.

  3. Preheat a panini grill. Top four of the bread slices with the artichoke hearts and spinach. Add strips of roasted pepper, then cheese. Top with the remaining bread and press together. Brush the outside of the bread (top and bottom slices) with olive oil. Place in the panini maker and grill for four to five minutes, until the cheese has melted and the bread is toasty. Slice in half and serve hot.
