Tilda Legendary Rice is an Aromatic Explosion! [#Giveaway], CAN, 10/14

We eat a lot of basmati rice. Probably five times a week and the other two days it's pizza and pasta. Yes, that much.

It's my go to side dish because the kids love it and it's easy to prepare in my rice cooker.

The only thing that would be easier would be to put it in the microwave for two minutes but that's not possible. Or is it?

Tilda Canada Rice Choices

Introducing Tilda Legendary Rice!

If I could share with you the aromatic and authentic smells that this rice exudes, I would because it's a taste for your senses. And, I'd be a gazillionaire.

The Pilau Steamed Rice is delicately infused with Indian spices and made me feel like I was in an Indian restaurant. You could taste each of the ingredients on the label with the added benefit of no artificial flavours, preservatives and it's Gluten free! I was impressed that you could clearly see the cumin seeds (pictured). The Mushroom rice was just as impressive in taste but the nutrition facts are what really caught my attention.

Tilda Canada Rice Collage

If you're concerned about fat, calories and sodium, there was no comparison between the leading brands "seasoned rice side dish" and Tilda. The calories were more than three times greater as was the sodium and the fat was twice as much in the leading brand. Tilda was the healthier choice by far.

The Pure Basmati Rice was the one variety that didn't impress. While the aroma was lovely, both Ed and I would have liked it to have tasted saltier. Then again, it has 1/5 of the sodium content of the other varieties. A definite plus if you need to watch your sodium levels.

Tilda Canada Found at Food Basics

We live in a small town (population 4,000) so I was really excited to find that my local grocery store, Food Basics, carried all four varieties.

Considering there are only two servings per package (250g), I found that $2.99 (per package) to be expensive for regular meals for a family of four.

However, when we entertain, it would be well worth the price to buy a few packages, throw them in the microwave only minutes before dinner and voila, instant fancy rice that isn't burned! There is definitely a price to getting to spend less time in the kitchen and more with friends. If it was just Ed and I, we would definitely eat this product at least one a week.

I'm not very daring in the kitchen, however, rice doesn't only have to be for dinner. Tilda has tons of lunch and even breakfast recipes. I know!?

If you're a lover of rice or appreciate something a little different, Tilda Legendary Rice is definitely a product that you should try.
