Build Your Own Table Bundle with Pink Clay, Turmeric, and Terracotta.


Ingredients

  • 2 baguettes, cut into thirds to make 6 baguette rolls
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced into long batons
  • 1 small bunch coriander
  • 1 small bunch spring onions, cut into 10cm lengths
  • 1 fresh birds eye chilli, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tsp chilli oil

For the mayonnaise

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

For the pickled carrot

  • 1 carrot, peeled and julienned
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1⁄4 cup warm water
  • 1⁄4 white sugar

Prepare your pickled carrot by dissolving your sugar in warm water and white vinegar.

Place your julienned carrots into the pickling liquid and allow to soak for at least 20 minutes to infuse. You can place any leftovers in a jar submerged in the liquid in the fridge to use over the next month or so.

Prepare the mayonnaise by beating your egg yolks until smooth and creamy. Slowly add in your olive oil a tablespoon at a time, whisking until the oil is emulsified. Season with salt. You can also save any leftovers in the fridge to use in your meals for up to a week.

Fry your eggs sunny side up, cracking into a hot pan with oil, turning down the heat to medium-low frying for a few minutes or until the bottom is crispy and the whites are no longer transparent.

Drain the carrots from the pickling liquid on a paper towel before assembly so they don’t make the bánh mì soggy.

Assemble the bánh mì by smearing the mayonnaise onto the bread.

Place in 1-3 sticks of cucumber, 2 spring onion sprigs, 1 fried egg, 2 tablespoons worth of pickled carrots and some fresh chilli and coriander to your liking.

Spoon over a few teaspoons of soy sauce and chilli oil.

Serve and enjoy!
