  3. 2 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  4. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  5. 2 tablespoons minced lemongrass (about 3 bulbs)
  6. 2 medium cloves garlic, minced

  10. sliced cucumbers, Japanese or English hothouse or other types with fewer seeds

  1. Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, lemongrass and garlic in a small bowl.
  2. In a shallow dish place tofu slices in a single layer. Pour sauce over tofu, turning pieces to coat well. Let tofu absorb all of the marinade, turning and patting the lemongrass and garlic on each slice. Cook tofu in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crisp on each side (about 8 minutes on the first side and 5 minutes or longer on the second side).
  3. Prepare your banh mi. Mix 2 tablespoons mayonnaise with 1 teaspoon sriracha. Slather on both sides of the baguette. Layer with tofu, sliced cucumber, do chua pickles, cilantro. Drizzle sriracha sauce on the tofu if you want to add a little extra spiciness to the sandwich, or add thinly sliced jalapeños.
