Bánh Mì Chay

BY : PUBLISHED : September 8th, 2016 UPDATED: September 29th, 2022

Most of the summer, at least where I live, it feels much too hot to cook. On days like that there's nothing better than a sandwich and the Bánh Mì Chay fits the bill nicely. Last summer I discovered a variation of this sandwich at a juice bar in Providence, RI. They grilled theirs panini-style on sliced sourdough and didn't use lettuce. This recipe calls for a baguette like a classic Bánh Mì does and is not grilled. The panini-style is just as good but for a quick, easy, and delicious sandwich just try the recipe below.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 baguette
  • 1 jalepeno
  • 1 carrot
  • a few leaves of lettuce
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • ¼ cup of peanut butter
  • Cilantro
  • Sriracha hot sauce

Instructions
 

  • Slice apple into ⅛ to ¼ inch slices.
  • Either grate or spiral the carrot. If you use a spiraler like the Ben-Riner then the bigger the carrot the better the spiral.
  • Slice the jalepeno thinly. Remove seeds if you want to reduce the heat.
  • Slice the baguette lengthwise and spread peanut butter on both halves.
  • Layer all your ingredients and top with Sriracha and cilantro.

Notes

If you have time, you can always turn this into a panini-style sandwich by giving it a quick grill.
