banh mi

August 28th, 2008


Inspired by Angry Chicken’s Banh Mi we had our own variation this evening. Our recipe:

1 baguette sliced into sandwich size and split in half
1 carrot, shaved
1 bunch cilantro (can’t have enough)
1 daikon radish, shaved
1 jalapeno, sliced into thin strips
2 c cooked rice vermicelli
1 pkg flavored, smoked tofu OR regular firm tofu marinated in soy sauce and rubbed with Thai Red Curry sauce

For dressing:
We tried 2 tbs mayonaise, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tsp dijon mustard, which we liked.
I also use 2 tsp sugar, 2 tbs rice wine vinegar sprinkled on the veggies.

Basically, make the dressings, slice the veggies, cook the noodles and then layer it all on your baguette. YUM!

No pictures. We were hungry and in a hurry to watch Bok Mama.
