Recently Hellmann’s brought out a new tomato ketchup that is sweetened with honey and nothing else.

How mad is that? Well, it’s actually pretty damn good (and we go through bottles of the stuff!).

We were tasked with creating a dish using this Hellmann’s Tomato Ketchup Sweetened with Honey.

If you’re a regular reader of the site you’ll know that we like to try something a bit different. Playing it safe can be so boring sometimes!

So instead of going for the usual burger, hot dog or Marie Rose sauce type of affair, we decided to go all out and recreate one of our favourite dishes….Chicken Pad Thai.

Now, there is a debate over whether or not a traditional Pad Thai should have ketchup in, but no matter which camp you fall into there’s no denying that this is one tasty recipe!!

The Hellmann’s Tomato Ketchup Sweetened with Honey contains 30% less sugar than other brands of ketchup.

It also contains a whopping 36% more tomatoes than the market leader standard tomato ketchup. Less sugar = all the better in my book!

Whisk the eggs, then add to the frying pan and cook over a medium-high heat, stirring continuously until the eggs are scrambled. Don’t over cook them, it’s best to leave them a little wet.

Add the spring onion and beansprouts and cook for a minute. Don’t overcook – or else your eggs will disappoint!
