Total time
Serves: 2
Banh Mi:
  • 1 package of mochi
  • ¼ of a red onion
  • ½ a jalapeno
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp. mint
  • 2 Tbsp. tamari
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sriracha (optional)
  • 1 small package sprouted tofu
  • ¼ cup tamari
  1. Remove mochi from refrigerator and set on counter 30 minutes before you want to get started (helps soften it up)
  2. Preheat oven to broil.
  3. Drain water from tofu and cut tofu length-wise into 4 slabs. Then cut each of those in half width-wise for a total of 8 pieces. Place them in a dish and pour tamari over the top. Flip tofu making sure all liquid is absorbed.
  4. Place on an oiled baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes.
  5. Then flip & broil for 5 more.
  6. Next make avocado mayo by placing avocado flesh, mustard, oil, sriracha and tamari in the food processor. Blend until smooth. (Will be salty but perfect for the sandwich)
  7. Next shred carrot, cut onion into strips, cut tomatoes and jalapenos and mint into slices or strips.
  8. Next preheat your waffle iron and lightly oil. Cut mochi into 4 stripes width-wise. Place 2 strips on waffle iron and close iron. Hold iron closed with pressure until finished.... about 3 - 6 minutes (will depend on waffle iron) Take mochi out and separate into 2 pieces, which act as the slices of bread.
  9. To assemble, spread avocado mayo on slices of mochi, then tofu and desired vegetables. Squash down and dig in! Will be messy, but is delicious!
