Panini with spinach and roasted red pepper hummus!!


I got this recipe all the way from U.S.A, washington D.C, when we visited the 'National Air and Space Museum'...my daughter and husband take lots of interest in Astronomy,they never miss any opportunity in gaining more knowledge about the space and the universe..specially my daughter has done an Astronomy course in GCSE at very young age and passed the exam with A*....so it was after visiting NASM and NASA space centre in florida, she was so facinated about Astronomy that we decided to put her on an Astronomy course...


In between these visits we approched a cafe inside the space centre where we found that only vegetarian dish available was "Panini with spinach and Hummus"...as we were starving we went for this dish and to our surprise, this dish turned out to be so delicious that I asked the assistant for the recipe...;0)) kindly she gave me the recipe and this dish has become a big hit with my family !! I've made it so many times with diffrent flavoured hummus...

You will need;-

Italian Panini Bread( I bought from supermarket)
Healthy margarine
Baby spinach
Roasted pepper hummus

Method:-

Slit open the panini bread.  Apply margarine in the inside, now fill it up with thick layers of hummus and spinach.  Now wrap the top layer of the panini bread on it.  Toast useing the panini maker or grill it.(I know pics are not good as I wanted..:0(, trust me taste is much much better)


Enjoy it as much as we always do...

  3. We visited Air and Space Museum last year, my kids loved it too. We went on that Simulation machine there, wasn't that great. Universal Studios in Orlando have better rides than those! :P
    Loved NASA though.You should take the kids to Pearl Harbour one day, not only amazing but you feel those soldiers presence buried under the water inside the half sunken ship after all these years, it's chilling and makes you tear up.
    Spinach and Hummus sounds in Panini great.
