I love Banh Mi, but I don’t get to make it as often as I like.
Because this sandwich requires certain ingredients, I do need extra planning or time to make one if I have to make from zero.
Luckily today I happened to have several key ingredients already.
Thus, I was able to put this together without much hassle.
I just purchased Daikon radish and cilantro.
I had homemade vegan meat (actually two types of meat!) already.
I had some leftover dishes that could be put together to make “pâté”.
And when this idea came to me, I was at an Asian grocery store which sells the type of baguettes (soft and light) that were perfect for Banh Mi sandwich.
Doesn’t this look great?!
I used homemade “pork” and “chicken” vegan meat for this, and they worked great, by providing different flavors and textures.
You can probably see the meat better in this picture.
You can also see how strong I look (I’m not that muscular, but in this picture I look very strong, don’t I (lol)?).
Definitely satisfied my Banh-Mi craving!
