Description

Organic Paella makes warming, creamy rice dishes.

Organic Paella rice is the most absorbent rice you can find and it makes creamy, delicious paella dishes.  Paella is actually the name of the dish, not the rice variety, but this rice is perfect for a delicious authentic Paella.

This speciality rice is the marisma variety and it cooks into a delicious soft consistency, absorbing all the flavours of the dish.  Just one 90g of cooked paella rice is a source of Thiamin B1, Folate and Manganese.

The traditional Spanish dish Paella originated in Valencia and although it typically uses shellfish and meat, you can make very tasty vegetarian and vegan versions.  The name Paella actually means pan or dish in Latin and the name was inspired by the wide flat pans used to make Paella in Spain.  It is traditional to eat Paella straight from the pan so it makes a great fun dish to share with family or friends.

We also stock organic wholemeal paella rice.  If you interested in other speciality rices try our organic brown jasmine rice, organic black rice, organic white basmati rice, organic brown basmati rice and organic red rice.

Origin: Spain

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, sesame, soya, peanuts.
