Vietnamese Style Sandwich

Yum a refreshing Vietnamese sandwich on a hot summer day!

French Style Baguette
Firm Tofu or Fried Tofu
Fresh Cilantro
Shredded Carrots
Shiitake Mushrooms
Trader Joe's Soyaki Sauce or just Soy Sauce
Soy Sauce
Sriracha or Cayenne Pepper

Saute Shiitake mushrooms in small pan with a dash of soy sauce until cooked. Set aside. Slice tofu into thin squares. Fried tofu will make your sandwich a lot better than the regular kind. (Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to purchase it when I took this picture.) Break off cilantro into quarters with fingers. In a separate bowl mix 2 Tbsp of Trader's Joe's Soyaki sauce with 1 tsp of regular soy sauce and a few dashes of Sriracha. If you can't get the TJ Soyaki I would suggest just using soy sauce with a little bit of sugar. The Soyaki has a hint of sweet that is necessary for the sandwich to even come close to tasting Vietnamese.

Cut baguette into desired sandwich size. Lather sauce on bread then top with carrots, tofu, cilantro, and finally mushrooms!
