Campsite Cooking: Banh Mi


A traditional Vietnamese Banh Mi adds a little bit of the exotic to your campsite cooking repertoire – and it’s easy to make. A fusion of French and Asian food culture, this spicy chicken sandwich on baguette can be rustled up in half an hour.

Ingredients (for 4)
450g chicken mince
1 egg
1 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp chopped coriander
2 baguettes
1 spring onion
1 cucumber1 carrot
½ radish
1 small bunch mint

For pink mayonnaise
150g mayonnaise
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch crushed pink peppercorns


Prepare the pink mayonnaise by mixing the ingredients together in a bowl.

Place the chicken mince, the breadcrumbs and finely chopped coriander in a bowl. Add the egg, season with salt and pepper and mix together until well combined.

Lightly moisten your hands, scoop out a small amount of the mixture and shape into a small ball, then lightly flatten each piece with the palm of your hand. Repeat until there is no mixture left. Set aside.

Peel the carrot and radish. Rinse the cucumber. Slice the vegetables and finely chop the onion.

Turn on the barbecue and cook the chicken patties for a few minutes on both sides until they are nicely coloured.

Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Spread each half of the baguette with the pink mayonnaise. Garnish with the vegetables and place the chicken patties on top. Top with the other half of the baguette. Serve immediately with fresh mint.
