Vegetarian Banh Mi

For our Sunday lunch, Mr. O and I used this recipe from Vegetarian Times as our jumping-off point.  As usual, we fiddled and fussed, and this was the result:

We weren’t precise enough to write out a real recipe, but here are the components for a tasty sandwich:

  • Baguette
  • Stir-fried tofu, finished with soy sauce
  • Thinly shredded carrot and radish, quickly pickled in rice vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes
  • Baby kale (our market was out of regular kale) 
  • Cucumber, cut into long, wide slices
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Mayo 
  • Siracha

We found that the our variation on the original recipe made enough for two sandwiches, and we made a little salad on the side of each (baby kale leaves, extra pickled vegetables, cucumber, blackberries, and a splash of olive oil).

Also: Siracha, where have you been all my life?
