This popular Vietnamese street food packs flavoursome fillings into fresh baguettes.

Ingredients

Aubergine

2 medium, trimmed and cut into 5mm-thick rounds

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Cabbage

70 g, red

Carrots, raw

1 medium, peeled into ribbons with a vegetable peeler

Rapeseed Oil

1 tablespoons

Rice Wine Vinegar

½ tablespoons

Groovy Food Co. Agave Nectar Light Amber & Mild

2 teaspoons

Lime Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Chilli, Green or Red

½ individual, red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

Tesco Bake At Home Petits Pains

280 g, 4 x 70g

Mint, Fresh

4 sprig(s), small handful

Instructions

  1. Set a large nonstick griddle pan over a medium-high heat. Rub the aubergine slices with the garlic, then mist with cooking spray. Season to taste. When the griddle is smoking hot, add the aubergine slices and cook for 3 minutes on each side, until tender and charred, then transfer to a plate and set aside. You will need to do this in batches.
  2. Put the cabbage and carrot into a small bowl. In a small jug, whisk together the oil, vinegar, agave syrup, lime juice and chilli. Add the dressing to the cabbage and carrot, then toss together and set aside.
  3. Split the baguettes lengthways. Layer with the aubergine, cabbage, carrot and mint, then serve.

Notes

Use regular white wine vinegar if you don’t have any rice vinegar.
