Banana blossom banh mi


Recipe courtesy of @edenvegan

1. Heat a fry pan on the stove with a dash of olive oil.
2. Drain the canned banana blossom.
3. Fry on a medium heat, adding in the soy sauce, maple, ACV and spices. Toss for a few minutes making sure to coat each piece. You can ‘mash’ it up as you fry to get smaller, crispier peices.
4. Thinly slice carrot and cucumber and roughly chop 1/2 cup of fresh coriander.
5. Once the banana blossom has absorbed the sauce and started to turn golden/crispy, set aside while you prepare the Banh Mí.
6. Prepare the baguette by slicing into sandwich sized pieces. Spread vegan mayo on the base and stack with the fresh fillings and pickled cabbage.
7. Garnish with a handful of coriander, chilli and a sprinkle of cracked pepper.
