After classic grilled cheese sandwiches, our second quick go-to sandwiches are Vietnamese banh mi. Though many traditional banh mi have grilled pork and meats, we always enjoy having a vegetarian version. To make use of abundant zucchini, we’ll grill up some slices of it with an Asian-style marinade and assemble a platterful for parties.
For the bread, select a light and airy baguette rather than the firmer, denser ones. One of the key elements of a great banh mi is having a bread that is crusty yet not too heavy.
