Vegan Banh Mi Sliders

I made them and they’re a keeper! I followed this recipe with a few exceptions. I made the buns because bread is life in our house. Plus, did you know banh mi means bread? So there should be no slacking on that part of the sandwich.

The cucumbers, jalapenos and cilantro came from the garden. I used Just Mayo, sriracha and some dried cayenne in the mayo. I baked the tofu. I pickled regular radishes because we didn’t have daikon.

Here’s the bread recipe, which I made half whole wheat. I also used coconut milk, instant yeast and doubled the recipe. It made plenty to freeze for our next vegan slider experiment.

Smokin’ Cashew Cream

1/3 Cup cashews

2 tb nutritional yeast

2/3 cup water

juice of one lemon

1 small clove of garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Combine in a Vitamix or other powerful blender until smooth. If you have a powerful blender, soak the cashews in water for at least 2 hours before blending.

Heat gently on the cooktop or use the hot soup setting on the Vitamix.
