(NC) After a long day at the office, many Canadians lack the energy and the motivation to even think about dinner, opting to order out instead. In a recent Angus Reid poll commissioned by VH sauces, seven per cent of respondents admitted to having a local take-out restaurant on their speed dial.

But with the right ingredients and a little inspiration in the kitchen, recreating your family’s favourite take-out dishes doesn’t have to be difficult. With new sauces, like VH Thai Market Pad Thai sauce, Canadians can whip up a Pad Thai dish in 30 minutes flat. Loaded with crisp vegetables, crunchy roasted peanuts and a flavourful Asian-inspired sauce, this Pad Thai recipe will have you tossing out your take-out menus for good.

For a quick and easy vegetable Pad Thai, consider the recipe below.

Vegetable Pad Thai with Snow Peas

Prep time: 20 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Makes: 4 servings


  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 2 cups Onions, finely slivered
  • 4 cups Napa cabbage, finely sliced
  • 2 cups Red pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup Carrots, peeled and finely sliced
  • 2 cups Snow peas
  • 1 bottle VH Thai Market Pad Thai Sauce
  • ½ package Pad Thai noodles (prepared as directed on package)
