Recipe type: Sandwich
Cuisine: Vietnamese
Serves: 2
  • For the pickles
  • 250ml rice wine vinegar
  • 30g sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt, you'll need less if you use table salt
  • 120g carrots
  • 250g radishes
  • To make the Bhn Mi
  • 2 small baguettes
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp maggi sauce or kecap manis
  • 80g pork pate
  • 200g cold meat, pork, chicken, turkey or tofu
  • 1 chilli finely sliced
  • 8 sprigs coriander including the stalk
  • 1 spring onion sliced
  • Pickled vegetables to taste
  1. Pour the rice wine vinegar into a medium size bowl,add the sugar and salt and stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved.
  2. Peel the carrots and wash the radishes, either using a mandolin or a sharp knife slice the radishes very thinly. Do the same with the carrots, but using the peeler is the easiest way to get thin slices.
  3. Put the sliced vegetables in the pickling solution for a minimum of 20 minutes, longer if you want them to have a stronger pickled flavour.
  4. To Make the Bahn Mi
  5. Slice the bread nearly all the way through, but still attached on one long side. Spread one side of each baguette with half the mayo and the other with half the maggi seasoning or soy/kecap manis.
  6. Spread half the pate on each baguette and pile with the cold meat, then add the chilli half the coriander, onions and pickles to each.
  7. Force the bread closed and enjoy
