Banh Mi Sandwich

  • 1 baguette roll or a  section cut from a regular length baguette, 
  • purchased or homemade Mayonnaise, 
  • soy sauce
  • Your choice of boldly-flavoured meat or tofu, sliced and at room temperature
  • 3 or 4 thin seeded cucumber strips, 
  • 2 or 3 cilantro sprigs, roughly chopped
  • 2 or 3 chives or garlic chives
  • 3 or 4 thin jalapeño or Thai chillie slices
  • Daikon and Carrot Pickle (do chua)
  1. Slit the roll lengthwise, and then hollow out the insides, making a trough in both halves. If necessary, crisp up the bread in an oven preheated to 160ºC (325F), and then let it cool for a minute before proceeding.
  2. Generously spreading the inside with mayonnaise. Drizzle in some soy sauce. On the bottom portion of bread add the remaining ingredients.
