Won't you stand (virtually) banh mi as we make this delicious meal together?
You're going to go coco-nuts for it!
Join us on July 25th at 5pm (CDT) via Zoom to make banh mi with a twist! $20 per household (we encourage the whole family to join in)!
We will be making:
Banh Mi Noodle Bowls (naturally gluten-free and dairy-free)
Coconut Mint Fizz (usually made with gin but really any alcohol would work)
Banh mi is the Vietnamese word for bread - but it is mainly known as a delicious type of sandwich, AKA my favorite type of sandwich. Ironically, we will be taking the baguette out of the sandwich (I know, crazy right?) and will instead utilize the famous ingredients - pickled radishes, carrots, cilantro, cucumber and pork/chicken (or jackfruit for a vegan option) plus more - in a noodle bowl!
After you register, the week before class starts, you will receive an e-mail with a list of ingredients so you can buy your groceries and prepare ahead of time, as well as the Zoom meeting information! See you soon!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
