Tofu Banh Mi
I love a good sandwich but sandwiches can get a bit redundant when you are vegetarian. I eat vegan the majority of the time which cuts down on the sandwich choices even more. My kids would be happy with PB and honey every day I think. I need a little more variety.
I come across some great looking vegan sandwiches on Pinterest. Last week I finally got around to actually making a couple of them! I have never had an authentic Banh Mi so I don’t have anything to compare but this tofu banh mi was great. It was easy to put together and had great flavor. I will definitely be making this one again. Probably for lunch today!
- 1 package extra firm tofu, sliced
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- pinch red pepper flakes
- pinch of salt
- broccoli slaw
- red onion, sliced
- fresh cilantro leaves
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray aluminum foil with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey, ginger, red pepper flakes and salt.
- Dip the tofu slices in the sauce and place on baking sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes, flipping after 15 minutes.
- To assemble the sandwiches:
- Slice baguette.
- Lay the tofu slices on half of the baguette. Squirt on a little sriracha.
- Place the broccoli slaw, red onion, and cilantro on the tofu. Top with other half of the baguette.
