Bánh Mì Chay

BY : PUBLISHED : September 8th, 2016 UPDATED: November 17th, 2021

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.
