1. Lemongrass Tofu Banh Mi.
Source: Lemongrass Tofu Banh Mi.
Banh mi: a sandwich to beat all sandwiches. The fluffy, crispy-skinned baguettes used in Vietnam are often made from rice flour, but a very fresh wheat flour bread will do just fine here. (Use a baguette about 30 cm long to get the right size for the sandwiches.) It is worth hollowing out part of the soft center to make more space for the fillings. Use vegan mayonnaise if you want to turn it into a vegan recipe. This Lemongrass Tofu Banh Mi Recipe from The Way to Eat Now: Modern Vegetarian Food © Alice Hart, 2016, 2017.
