We seem to revisit the flavours of our good friend, Bahn mi, over and over. There’s just something special about the magical combo of flavours (sweet, savoury and sour), textures (soft and crunchy) and temperatures (warm, cool and crisp), all in a single dish. Bahn mi are really all that.
While we still adore the traditional bahn mi sandwich along with our take on this Bahn mi bowl, these new little cuties will satisfy your craving in a super gorgeous little package. Which you can eat with one hand! (We’re looking at you moms).
We’ve made these with chicken, beef and pork, so we’re confident your favourite variety will work, whatever it may be. They are so simple to put together and totally impressive looking, so be prepared to wow your dinner party guests with the prettiest appy ever. Everything can be prepped in advanced and the meatballs heated through at the last minute for assembly, too.
If you’re looking to make these as part of meal for the family, serve alongside steamed rice, any whole grain, some noodles tossed in a little sesame oil, or better yet, these Sesame Noodles.
When we’re serving these for dinner at our table, it would look something like the photo above. That way, if there are selective eaters at the table (big and little people both qualify!), they’re free to pick and choose what they want to eat. That way, we’re serving the whole family the same meal. And we can have as many pickled carrots as darn well please!
Are you ready to welcome our friend, Bahn mi into your life?
