How to Make Vietnamese Sandwiches
1With a mortar and pestle crush the garlic and salt together into a paste. Or use a knife if you don't have a mortar and pestle. Put it into a medium mixing bowl.
2Add the vinegar and Xylitol to the bowl and give it a good stir top dissolve the Xylitol. You can replace the Xylitol with sugar.
3Add the shredded carrots and chilies. I used 1/4 tsp. cayenne in mine because we don't care for hot things. Toss everything and set it aside.
4Toast your 8 pieces of bread. You can also use a baguette if you prefer, just cut it into 4 equal pieces, then cut each piece in half.
5Spread both sides of your bread with the Vegenaise (or other mayo if you prefer).
6Arrange the meat on the bread. You can use chicken or pork as well. Sprinkle the meat with the lime juice and some of the 5 Spice Powder.
7Top with the carrot salad and the cilantro leaves.
8Cover with the bread tops.
