These Keto Bánh Mì Bowls are the perfect way to get your Vietnamese food fix without all the carbs. Typically I’m not a big fan of Vietnamese food, but my wife loves it so it makes it way onto our menu from time to time. If I’m being totally honest I wasn’t super excited when she asked me to make this recipe, but I was pleasantly surprised. The flavors were so bold and vivid (is that a real way to describe food?…I don’t know, but let’s go with it) I was smiling the whole time I was chewing. So much so my cheek/jaw muscles were a little sore after eating.
We start off with a deliciously sticky charred chicken thigh and layer in goodness from kimchi, fresh vegetables, and a spicy mayo dressing. It’s one awesome bowl.
It also makes for great leftovers as the flavors really meld together after a day or so making this a great meal-prep option.
We had a few fresh herbs: cilantro, basil, and mint, on hand the second day and added those in and it was perfect too.
