That's right! This is my take on a classic Vietnamese Banh Mi Sandwich. Hence the Take Banh Mi! Yup, a straight-up sandwich recipe, on actual (gluten-free) BREAD on Tasty Yummies. What is up?
First off, it has to be known that I am not some crazy food perfectionist. F perfection! While my mission with this website and the work I do is to offer healthful recipes, to give you all tons of options, to hopefully you inspire to move away from the often common, nutrient-depleted fare – I am also not a monster. Sometimes I will have a tasty AF gluten-free sandwich, if the mood strikes. With this happening a mere few times a year at this point, I still feel really good about my life choices. My aggressive consumption of Big F-ing Salads far outweighs the occasional GF sammie! Beyond all that, creating an epic sandwich for a good cause – that's definitely my style.
Banh Mi Sandwich. A Sandwich for a Good Cause.
When my pals at Canyon Bakehouse asked if I would take part in The Sammie Smackdown Challenge, with the potential for a $10,000 grand prize being awarded to the charity of my choice – how in the world could I say 'no'?
So, I put my philanthropy hat on, along with my sammie-making hat and decided I would go all in! No holding back. I thought about the single best sandwich I had in most recent times and I went to town. My entry, the Take Banh Mi Sandwich was born and here we are with a Gluten-free Banh Mi Sandwich.
For my charity I chose the incredible Joyful Heart Foundation. Joyful Heart is a leading national organization with a mission to transform society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, support survivors’ healing, and end this violence forever.
Joyful Heart carries out its mission through an integrated program portfolio of healing, education, and advocacy. Their work is paving the way for innovative approaches to treating trauma, igniting shifts in the way the public views and responds to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, and reforming legislation to ensure justice for survivors.
I Need Your Help.
Here's the thing. I don't want this to all this sandwich creating to be for nothing, but most importantly, I really want to see my charity, The Joyful Heart, be the recipient of this amazing prize! As a 100% privately funded organization I know it could make a huge impact in the very important work that they do – so this is where you come in! Their work is only made possible through donations. So you have to vote for my sandwich to win. And guess what, you can vote once a day for this month long campaign. So, set your reminders and get those votes in daily!! And spread the word, ask your friends and family to vote, too. This is important!! Plus, if my sandwich wins, I will come to all of your houses and make you this sandwich.*
