Organic Veggie Pad Thai

Pad Thai that is ready in 15 minutes but tastes like you’ve been in the kitchen all day.

Our savoury Fresh City's Pad Thai Sauce coats the array of beautiful vegetables sitting atop fresh noodles to make a delicate blend of sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and spicy. Pickled ginger, lime, and fresh cilantro enhance the final zippy touch of these Southeast Asian flavours. This meal is easy to make, quick to prepare and uses ingredients that are nutritiously satisfying for a well balanced dish.
