VeganMofo day 5 prompt:
Best sandwich ever.
One of my favorite sandwiches is this vegan banh mi sandwich! It’s layered with lots of flavorful elements: savory baked tofu slices, tangy pickled carrots and daikon (my favorite part), crunchy red onions, fresh cucumbers, jalapenos for a kick (optional, especially if you are weak sauce like me when it comes to spice), all in between a chewy baguette smothered with creamy vegan mayo.
I think I only had a banh mi once before in my life when I was in middle school before my vegetarian days. Then within the past few years, my friend took me to Mendocino Farms and they had a vegan version on their menu! I was so excited and it definitely didn’t disappoint! I do like making it at home though because I can control the spice level on it since as noted above, I am weak sauce when it comes to that.
If you’ve never tried this Vietnamese style sandwich, I highly recommend it and let me know how you like it if you give it a try!
