Gluten-Free Banh Mi Recipe

If you’ve never had a Banh Mi sandwich before, please listen up because you have been missing out! Banh Mi is a staple in Vietnam and a Gluten-Free Banh Mi is one of my favorite sandwiches. Banh Mi is actually the type of bread used, but most places here in the US that serve Banh Mi have specific ingredients added to the sandwich, including daikon radish, carrots, and cucumber with savory meat.

What other sandwich do you know that has fresh carrots, daikon radish, and cucumber on it? It might sound like an odd combination for a sandwich, but trust me … it’s fantastic!

The contents of this sandwich is pretty much naturally gluten-free, just be sure to check the ham/pork label. The bread, of course, will need to be gluten-free, so I turn to Schär’s sandwich rolls. Their sandwich rolls are the perfect texture and taste for all your sandwich needs.

By the way, it can be a bit tedious to julienne carrots and daikon by hand with a knife, so check out this tool that makes the process much easier.

    Hello thank you for the recipe .
    However I’m celiac, can I make the roll with rice flour only ? I can’t use wheat flour which contains gluten ?

      The rolls in this recipe are store-bought rolls from Schar. They are gluten-free. All the recipes on this website are gluten-free, so none of them use wheat flour.
