Notes:

Banh Mi is a classic Vietnamese sandwich that merges the cultures of France and Vietnam, and now America.

What if you feel the same as Jules (Samuel Jackson) in Pulp Fiction and you “Just don’t dig on swine” ? Not to worry, simply substitute the pork for cold pressed tofu, roasted or grilled mushrooms, grilled fish or even chicken breast. It really doesn’t matter as long as the ingredients are vibrant, fresh and healthy.
