I was inspired to make this gluten free panini recipe after vegan cafe Loving Hut asked me to create vegan lunch recipe ideas. So I got cooking that weekend and came up with this gluten free panini recipe. It is a delicious vegan, gluten free lunch idea.
Makes 1 panini
150g gluten free white bread flour
1tsp quick yeast
1/2tsp sea salt
1tsp ground flaxseed or gram flour + 3tsp warm water
1tsp olive oil
100ml warm water
2 slices Violife Vegan Cheese
1 medium tomato sliced
Firstly use a piece of baking paper to oil a small bread baking tin.
Next add the flour, salt, yeast, sugar and ground flaxseed into a bowl and mix. Now create a well in the middle. Pour the oil and some of the water into the well and mix in. Gradually add more water and mix until you have a smooth dough.
Put the dough into the baking tin and smooth out until flat and even with the back of a spoon. Cover the baking tin and leave the dough to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Preheat the fan oven to 200C.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
Slice in half lengthways. Fill with the vegan cheese and sliced tomato.
Finally cook on a griddle pan for 5 minutes on each side. Serve warm.
Store in an airtight container. Eat within 2 to 3 days.
