Mini versions of anything are fun, and Mini Banh Mi are no exception! Banh Mi is the vietnamese word for bread, and also refers to the popular street food of a baguette that has been split lengthways and filled with delicious savoury ingredients. And our favourite part is the pickled carrot. Right?
This recipe is our take on the this traditional vietnamese street food, but the possibilities are endless. Our friend Nagi over at Recipe Tin Eats also has some great suggestions on Banh Mi combos, but the ALL feature pickled carrots. And the best bit is when you use our carrot shred, the hard work is done for you, and you’ll look like a complete pro chef.
Our mini banh mi recipe below uses ham, but if you’re not a fan, just substitute the protein of your choice.
And our big tip is to keep some pickled carrot in the fridge at all times, the possibilities of how to use it are endless. On cheese boards, in salads, rice paper rolls, poke bowls, straight out of the jar…you catch our drift?
And remember, everytime you purchase some of our Just Veg. fresh carrot products from Woolworths, you’re supporting Aussie farmers and helping us use our whole crop. Even the carrots that aren’t supermodels, but are tasty, sweet, crunchy and nutritious.
