You have all the ingredients for your banh mi sandwich, but you are missing the right bread for it.
What would you do?
Make deconstructed bahn mi rice bowl!
I talked about this Trader Joe’s super firm tofu before.
This is REALLY firm and dense, and when cooked, the texture resembles that of chicken.
That’s why I say it’s a good first tofu to cook for tofu beginners.
We are definitely not beginners, but we still like it, as it’s different from other tofu.
Looks good, doesn’t it?
In addition to the tofu, I also prepared crunchy tempeh.
You first start with brown rice, and then add everything that would make banh mi otherwise.
Fresh crunchy veggies are a must.
How did I do?
