Funny girl Mindy Kaling is just like us. She loves eggplant parm sandwiches. She just doesn’t want to spend hours trickin’ out that greasy, cheesy Italian-American staple.
Instead, she quickly tops store-bought rotisserie chicken with a few fresh ingredients for a Banh Mi. While nothing Mindy adds to the sandwich is particularly intriguing—cucumbers, cilantro, Sriracha—her “pickled” carrots deserve a mention.
Sliced “picked” carrots (I quickly julienne two carrots and put them in a tupperware with rice vinegar and a half-teaspoon of sugar and a dash of salt).
Who wants to deal with real pickling? Real canning? Ugh. Do like Mindy. Quickly pickle.
