This sous vide healthy version of a banh mi has us feeling so many things…namely hungry. 

LearntoCook.com uses chicken breast to flesh out this sandwich, and we have to say, it looks amazing. Using sous vide on proteins, as you know, makes them tender, juicy, and flavorful.

The name is a bit misleading, since it’s mostly cultivated these days, and isn’t closely related to rice at all (fun fact: the French term for it translates as “crazy oats”—woo!), but labeling aside, it’s a grain worth knowing. Not only does it have a delicious nutty flavor and pleasant chewiness, it’s a nutritional powerhouse … Read more
