Bánh Mì Inspired Recipes
Bánh Mì is a Vietnamese term for all kinds of bread and is typically referred to when speaking of a traditional sandwich featuring pork and veggies, but can be enjoyed in many forms. Need a bánh mì fix? You've come to the right place!
Tofu Banh Mi Wraps with Quick-Pickled Carrots and Radishes
Drain the pickles well before adding to each wrap. This is a saucy sandwich, so extra liquid can make it a bit messy once you bite in.
Bánh Mì Rice Salad
This whole-grain salad riffs off the ingredients and flavors of the addictive Vietnamese bánh mì sandwich. We like it as a composed salad, but you can also stir everything together.
Bánh Mì Tacos
Guests will love assembling their own Bánh Mì-style tacos and stuffing them with homemade slaw and spicy Sriracha mayonnaise.
Crispy Cod Bánh Mì
Niki Nichols and her husband were trying to work more fish into their diets when they came up with this colorful sandwich. Now it's in their regular weeknight rotation.
Banh Mi Hot Dog
Try a vietnamese-inspired hot dog topped with carrots, red onion, vinegar, and jalapeño slices.
Spicy Avocado Banh Mi
Think avocadoes are just an ingredient for guacamole? Think again. They are a key ingredient in Spicy Avocado Banh Mi. This Vietnamese sandwich gets its kick from a jalapeno and a couple of teaspoons of Sriracha.
Grilled Eggplant Banh Mi Sandwich
Once grilled, eggplant comes into its full glory: tender, creamy flesh with a satisfying meatiness that makes it ideal for our Vietnamese-style Grilled Eggplant Banh Mi Sandwich.
Country Pâté Banh Mi
Silken tofu blended with lemongrass and lime juice is a terrific dairy-free stand-in for mayonnaise in this riff on the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich. Adam Erace sometimes makes the sandwich with local scrapple (a hash of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and shaped into a log or loaf).
Grilled-Chicken Banh Mi
This popular Vietnamese sandwich combines sweet, sour, crunchy and soft in one delicious—and portable—package.
Although the bánh mì may have originated in the markets of Saigon, in bigger cities in the U.S. it is now as much of an American lunchtime staple as the burrito or panini. There are as many variations of the bánh mì as there are cooks who make it. This version combines pork, cucumber, and a pickled slaw of radish, carrot, and onion.
Down-South Banh Mi
Here's a Southern spin on a classic Vietnamese-French sub. Keep the pickled pepper mixture and shredded pork on hand for a fast meal.
Lemongrass Tofu Banh Mi
The bread and Vietnamese filling—carrot and radish, cilantro, mayonnaise, and cucumber—are traditional in this vegetarian take on this classic Vietnamese sandwich. Prepare mayonnaise mixture and toast bread while the tofu and vegetable mixture marinate.
Banh Mi-Style Roast Beef Sandwiches
These roast beef sandwiches are a hearty and welcome addition to the lunch rotation, and with thick-sliced beef, you can get that great steak sandwich flavor.
