Pad Thai with a Very Lazy Food Twist | Recipe

February 2, 2018

Dr W and I both work full time, and at the moment we’re trying real hard to buy a house. (Long story for another blog post!) Because of this we’ve been trying to keep our weekday meals easy. One dish we’ve been enjoying is Pad Thai. Thanks to Very Lazy we’ve made it quicker to cook.

Very Lazy have an incredible range of products to make cooking everything from stir fries to pasta dishes easier. We’re already huge fans of the chopped garlic, but I was really excited to try out the new pastes. The ginger, garlic and lemon grass pastes were first on my list to try. I chose Pad Thai because it’s easy to cook and this makes it even quicker . No crushing garlic, grating ginger or faffing with lemon grass!

    I love Thai food but sometimes it can have too many steps – thanks for the Very Lazy hack!

      It can! Not useful when you’re in a mid week rush!

    This looks fab! I love the Very Lazy range – I use the garlic paste to make garlic bread!
