You converted tapes to CDs and CDs to MP3s, now convert a tasty Banh Mi sandwich to an even tastier rice bowl. Tip: Easier way to mince cilantro? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly chopped!
