Way better than takeout! Our Pad Thai comes together in less than 30 minutes and is perfect for busy weeknights when you’re craving for something with a little more flavor. Quick-cooking rice noodles with an easy Thai inspired sauce and not to forget: tofu, marinated with our Goût Robuste and soy sauce. If you have never tried the mix of our Goût Robuste and soy sauce, its caramel notes are just perfect for marinating and that combination adds a wonderful flavor by creating a nice contrast to the salty sauce. Umami at its finest! Feel free to add some left over veggies which you can stir fry with the tofu together.
