|Tilda wholegrain & quinoa|
Tilda has recently expanded its range to add a couple of wholegrain and quinoa mixes.
Quinoa is hailed as a superfood or super grain, its health benefits are well known. It helps with digestion, reduces headaches and strokes, controls blood sugar levels, boosts energy and much more.
Brown Basmati & Quinoa Wholegrain is made with a delicious & nutty brown basmati rice. The classic grain with all the natural goodness of the bran layer intact is combined with quinoa, known for its nutritional benefits. The texture is light and fluffy, sightly crunchy thanks to quinoa seeds.
Ingredients: natural wholegrain basmati rice, natural yellow and red quinoa, sunflower oil, vegetable stock powder, salt.
The pack contains no artificial flavourings, colours or preservatives and is gluten free.
It counts as 170 kcal per serving, and includes two servings per pouch.
I mostly use the pre-steamed basmati as a side dish for meat, fish or vegetarian dishes.

Garden vegetable & quinoa features the wholegrain basmati, delicious & natural red quinoa, combined with the tasty mix of carrots, butternuts squash as well as herbs and spices (turmeric, lemon zest, ginger and coriander).
The taste is subtle and gentle. Eat it as a lovely side dish, or a main, mixed with more veggies.
Tilda wholegrain and quinoa mixes are also very good for soups, with extra root vegetables and herbs, add the stock you prefer, and make it meat-free or add cooked meat for a quick lunch or dinner.

When I'm on my own at lunch time, I tend to use whatever leftovers I have from the dinner from the previous day. Dump it all together is my favourite recipe - meat, sausages, vegetables go well with a bit of Tilda rice and some olives. Jazz it up with some lemon juice or balsamic vinegar.
New Tilda wholegrain and quinoa mixes are a great addition to an excellent range of rice. It's ready just in 2 minutes in the microwave, or if you don't have a microwave (I don't), it takes just a minute or two longer to reheat it in a pan.
Disclosure: I received several packs of Tilda wholegrain and quinoa for the purposes of reviewing. All opinions are mine.
