Banh Mi is a traditional Vietnamese sandwich of grilled pork and fresh veggies, but in this recipe, we show you how to make an equally delicious and authentic version that’s simple and time-saving (not to mention family-friendly)—all with House Foods organic tofu!
Ingredients for the marinade:
Ingredients for the pickled veggies:
For the sandwich:
- Add all marinade ingredients to a small bowl, and whisk to combine. Cut the tofu into ½ inch slices, pat with a paper towel to dry, and add to the marinade.
- While the tofu is marinating, pour the rice vinegar, salt, and brown sugar into a separate bowl, and whisk to combine. Add the radish, carrot, cucumber, and jalapeño, and refrigerate for one hour.
- Bring a grill to medium-high heat, and add the tofu. Pour over remaining marinade from the bowl onto the tofu, and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
- As the tofu is grilling, cut the baguette into 4 equal pieces, and cut in half (keeping the two halves of bread connected). Toast the bread for a few minutes, until golden brown, and assemble the sandwiches my spreading mayonnaise (or spread of choice) onto both sides of bread, and topping with grilled tofu, pickled veggies, and cilantro.
