Suggestions of yummy vegan panini fillings would be very helpful, please?

I volunteer in a hippy vegetarian cafe and we are trying to make the menu more vegan friendly, help would be much appreciated! Also it cannot contain hummus as the current vegan panini option has hummus in, so we need non hummus based ideas.

This recipe is great for people who aren’t big on eating meat all the time…or at all :)INGREDIENTS:
1 cup dried green lentils, rinsed
6 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup diced yellow onion
2 celery stalks, minced
1/4 cup leeks, finely diced
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
5 tsp Dijon mustard
3 tbsp unsalted tomato paste
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp ground cumin
1 cup cooked long-grain brown rice
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oilINSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook lentils according to package directions.
In a large bowl, mix garlic, onion, celery, leeks, flaxseed, Dijon, tomato paste and spices. When lentils are cooked, mash them with the back  of a fork, leaving some whole. Add mashed lentils and rice to bowl. Mix all ingredients together.
Heat oil in a medium saucepan on medium-high. While oil is heating, form lentil-rice mixture into 6 lentil patties. Add them to pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until light brown. Transfer patties to prepared baking sheet and cook in oven for 15 minutes to warm through. Serve with a side salad and topped with diced tomatoes and avocado, if desired.
NOTE: There is no need to sandwich these burgers between a bun since you’ll be consuming a healthy amount of fiber thanks to the brown rice and lentils. Source: CleanEating.com

Broccoli Curry with Spice Fried Onion and Banana bread
Suitable for vegetarians
I’m moving house on Saturday and so I have to finish all the perishable food even though none of it really comes together as proper meals. Ive ended up eating some odd things, but this meal worked suprisingly well.
 Broccoli Curry recipe:
1 serving of broccoli
1 glass of milk (can be substituted with coconut milk for a creamier curry)
2 tsp green Thai curry paste
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 glass water (can be substituted with coconut milk or regular milk for a creamier curry)
4 tsp gravy powder (I used vegetarian, chicken flavour gravy powder)
pepper to season
1/2 tsp tom yum curry paste (optional)
Slice up the broccoli, place in a saucepan and cover with water. Boil until cooked. Drain the broccoli then put it back on the heat. Add the milk and simmer for five minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients. Heat until it thickens and boils. 
Spice Fried Onion recipe:
1 medium sized white onion
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp turmeric
3 tsp garam malsala
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger
3 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 glass of water
Roughly slice the onion. Put it in a frying pan with a little oil, cook, stirring often, until the onion just starts to soften. Add the soy sauce and sesame seeds, cook, stirring often, for another five minutes. Add the turmeric, garam malsala and cinnamon. Cook for another five minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cook, stirring often, until the the onion is cooked through.

Traffic Light Salad

Tomorrow is my final deadline for the end of my first year at University. How crazy is that! It feels like only yesterday, I had just arrived here in this big city, not knowing anyone. The deadline has also meant that I have been living off salad and cereal. So I thought I would post my Traffic Light salad recipe, known as Traffic light because it is made up of green, orange and red vegetables. I haven’t given amounts because its salad, it depends on how many people are eating it and how much of each vegetable you have in the fridge.

Traffic Light salad recipe:

  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado
  • Carrot’s
  • Dried Apricot’s
  • Cherry Tomato’s
  • Red pepper
  • Feta cheese (optional)
  • Sunflower seeds (optional)

Finely slice the lettuce, cucumber and red pepper and put them in a bowl. With a vegetable peeler, peel the carrot and throw the skin away. Then keep peeling the carrot until it consists on a pile of carrot peelings. Add these to the bowl. Halve and stone the avocado, then slice it up and add it to the bowl. Half the cherry tomato’s and add them. Stir the salad and top with crumbled feta cheese, sunflower seeds and sliced dried apricot. 

Serve with a salad dressing of your choice, I suggest Dijon salad dressing.
