Quick Lunchbox idea

Preparing quick and easy meals for lunch is not only healthy but will stop you from snacking on bad foods and save you money in the process. Follow this quick recipe which can be made even quicker if you use Tilda’s ready made rice pouch! Rice is filling, gluten free and paired with peas & cumin adds flavour and nutrition to your lunch!


1 cup Basmati rice

2 cups water

1/2 cup frozen green peas (I use Bird’s Eye Petit Pois)

2 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp turmeric

season with rock salt


Boil the rice in water until cooked. Wash the frozen peas in water to remove the ice.

In a frying pan heat oil and cumin seeds until they colour and crackle slightly.

Add the peas and cook for approximately 2 mins; add turmeric, season with salt to taste and mix well. Remove from the heat.

Once your rice is cooked and the water is drained – I use a steel colander for this – then add the peas to your rice and using a fork mix it well through the rice. The rice will get infused with the yellow colour from the turmeric. Enjoy with a blob of low fat Greek style or homemade yoghurt and a nice green salad.
