Spoil Mum this Mother’s Day with the perfect dinner

Here's a timely press release from Tilda which may inspire some of you to pamper your mum that little bit extra tomorrow. Ditch the traditional roast, which inevitably results in mum having to peel loads of veggies and do lots of greasy washing up, and cook her a nice but simple meal instead. Read on ... !


It’s time to celebrate Mothers everywhere; today is the day to spoil yours. Why not show her how much you love her by cooking a delicious homemade paella using Tilda’s Sundried Tomato flavour rice from its tasty Steamed Basmati range.

With our steamed basmati range you can cook your Mum a tasty, quick and simple dish. The Tilda Steamed Basmati range does not just help Mums one day of the year – they are a helping hand throughout, offering mid-week meal solutions.

The Tilda steamed basmati range comes in 15 different varieties. Why not try this simple supper recipe.

Sundried Tomato Paella

For a tasty Spanish dish, start by frying 3 diced chicken thighs in some olive oil with a chopped onion and a little smoked paprika. When the chicken is golden, pour on 100ml white wine, 150ml chicken stock and a sprig of rosemary.

Stir in the Tilda Sundried Tomato steamed rice with 100g prawns and a handful of frozen peas and let it bubble away for a few minutes. When all the liquid is absorbed and the rice has a thick coating of sauce it is ready to serve with a lemon wedge.

Serve on a tray with a bunch of flowers to brighten up your Mother’s day!

Check out the website, for more mouth-watering recipe suggestions.

Tilda Steamed Basmati rices are available in all good supermarkets RRP £1.69.
