Directions

Step 1: Preheat panini grill to high.

Step 2: Brush one side of each pita with oil. Place on a work surface, oiled side down, and spread hummus over half of each pita, dividing evenly and leaving a 1⁄2-inch (1 cm) border around the edges. Evenly layer onion to taste, cucumber, roasted peppers, olives, tomato and feta on top of hummus. Sprinkle with pepper and oregano. Fold pitas over filling, pressing gently to pack.

Step 3: Place sandwiches in grill, close the top plate and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
