  • 4 small baguettes
  • 4 medium-size carrots
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup water
  • 400 g tofu
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 2 teaspoon mirin
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 3 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 cucumber
  • ¼ mango
  • A handful cilantro
  • A handful mint
  • 2 red chilis


  • To pickle the carrots, combine in a small container the carrots thinly sliced, maple syrup, vinegar, salt and water. Make sure all the ingredients are perfecly combined and leave them aside.
  • Prepare the tofu. With a paper towel, remove any excess of water and cut the tofu into medium-size square pieces. Combine the soy sauce, mirin, and the five-spice powder in a shallow pan. Add the tofu pieces and leave marinating for 15 minutes on each side.
  • Combine the vegan mayonnaise and the sriracha to prepare the sauce.
  • Thinly slice the cucumber, mango and chilis. Rinse with clean water the cilantro and mint.
  • Prepare the bread by cutting it lenghtwise just on one of the sides. This will help holding the ingredients inside your sandwich while eating it.
  • Once the tofu is marinated, heat some oil on a skillet or griddle pan and cook the tofu on both sides until it turns a golden color. Leave to cool. Keep the leftover marinade for later.
  • Add some of the leftover marinade on the bread, spread some sriracha mayo on both sides, pickled carrots (draining any excess of liquid), 3 tofu pieces, the fresh ingredients and the chilis.
  • Close your Banh Mi and enjoy!
