The fresh, fragrant taste of Vietnam combined with the not so sinful Lo-Dough make this dish a smash hit. The infamous Banh Mi is made traditionally with pork, grated carrot and coriander on a soft, white French baguette. We've kept the star ingredients, but unlike both the baguette which is high in carbohydrates, Lo-Dough comes to the rescue with its low calorie, low carb goodness.
Ok, so it may not be a true banh mi, but this version is strictly low carb and on the program. Inspired by the authentic flavours of Vietnam, we've added plenty of tasty ingredients into the mix for a show-stopping flavour explosion. We've also added gut cleansing red kimchi for optimum nutrition.
This is a perfect dish for serving canapés at a party, having friends round for dinner or enjoying a low carb, cultural dish with your family.
