from the lanai 3

With my new immersion blender/food processor, I shredded some daikon and carrot for bahn mi.

This is the recipe I use to make the banh mi veggies.

I also add some chili flakes and a dash of shoyu or nampla (fish sauce). I also try to soak the veggies overnight.

Then, one day for lunch I bought a piece of fried chicken from the convenience store and put it into a baguette with some of the banh mi veggies, cucumber & cilantro.

It was my first time putting fried chicken in, but it was a great choice...salty, sweet & sour.

The next day for Satoshi's breakfast, I made a banh mi with roast pork...he enjoyed it.

Since the amount of banh mi veggies I made was a lot, I threw together this salad for us one night.

Dressing was a sweet chili paste and a little vinegar.

I also gave some to my friend Kazumi when I went over to her house and I am also planning to make black bean dip with the rest of the cilantro.

The weather has been cold and rainy, so I better use up the cilantro soon.

So many adventures from your lanai lately! ;-) Your bahn mi variations are all great. Maybe you will open the next Nom Nom truck. ;-)

Like I mentioned - grow indoors under a light like they grow grass.

Hey Kat - You're sure making good use of what you've grown!

K and S said...

I don't have that kind of light nor space so I'll wait to grow more cilantro Nate, thanks though.

Thanks Kirk :)

Take care you two.

Thanks for the link. It looks like the veggies in the Bale sandwiches. Yum! I've bookmarked the link so that I can try the recipe.

Oh, I haven't had banh mi since forever, nevermind an amazing-sounding homemade one! (Not to mention, a great way to put your cilantro to use! :)). Yup, I agree with Rowena, a wonderfully well-fed household! :)

K and S said...

Hope you'll be able to remedy that when you move to the States, Jude :)

Take care.

Hi Kat,

those banh mi baguettes etc look really good. Despite missing a couple of ingredients (ie. cilantro) I was still inspired and made savory crepes for breakfast the last two days.

It's a beautiful day outside today. Hope you have a good one.

Take care.
