As I’m posting this recipe I am actually on my very first trip through Vietnam. The recipe however, was created a few weeks before my trip, in anticipation to this epic yummy holiday.
Banh Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich, made with a super light and crispy French baguette. It dates back to the time when Vietnam was a French colony – and so this traditional European bread is filled with Vietnamese flavours. Banh Mi is often made with a mixture of grilled meat and paté, then stuffed with pickles and fresh herbs. I’ve left out the paté for my banh mi, but nothing keeps you from adding a bit to it.
