VeganMofo 2013: Post 10–Lemongrass Banh Mi and Strawberry rum thing

So in the hunt for Golden Mountain Sauce I went to Genki Mart at Stafford.  They have daikon radish, an essential ingredient in Banh Mi!

 

My go to Banh Mi recipe is this one.  It’s pretty damn good.  I pureed up the marinade this time so it was amazingly lemongrassy.

To go with dinner I found a way to use up some of the strawberries: Strawberry Mojito (from here).  YUM!  I used a lot of strawberries, so it’s basically alcoholic strawberry puree.

I cut up the rest and have them in the freezer.  I seem to want to plan for the apocalypse at the moment – my freezer is full of sofrito, black beans and strawberries.  Anyone else find that they seem to buy in bulk by accident a lot?

This makes me feel like having a cocktail. Too bad there's no rum in the house.

I wager it would also taste good with vodka. Maybe you have that instead?

seeing as I just discovered two packets of black beans and adzuki beans and amaranth flakes and didn't even realise I'd bought them (obviously ages ago) then yays, I would say I have a bit of an issewe buying in bulk.

Genki Mart is so awesome. Plus it is right next to Siri Thai and they do awesome vegan-friendly food.

Your Banh Mi looks so delicious and I love fruity cocktails (not that I drink them often).

Love the look of this sammige! And your drink looks just like the strawb lemonade I make :)
