A Little Taste of Spain: Spanish Rice

Paella is one of the most famous Spanish foods, however many people don’t know that the word “Paella” actually refers to the pan in which the rice is cooked. This is a traditional Paella recipe, cooked in the thermal cooker for a quicker, healthier version that is just as delicious and a dish you are sure to cook often.

  1. Another amazing recipe developed by Nik. It sure take me to Spain. Had authentic Spanish paella’s before and being able to do it on my Thermomix and still have all the flavours but with the practical cooker is simply amazing. Thank you!!!

  2. Wow. What more can I say!! Such delicious flavours in this – and every other dish I’ve cooked. The whole family devoured it.! Along with the warm olives, spiced almonds, crusted cauliflower, garlic aioli and the supreme 5* romesco sauce. Nik, you have created the most amazing recipe book. Thanks for all the effort you and your team put into this.. 💟

  3. Loved this! Made vego for me and meat for hubby! So much flavour and very filling! Have frozen the left overs so we don’t eat any more tonight!

  4. This was a huge hit in my house a flavoursome dish that looks great. I coupled it with the Chorizo and Potato Stew. YUM. Easily fed five adults.

  5. This dish is amazing , so full of flavour and so easy to make . The lemon juice at the end is a must, it just lifts the dish to a different level. I added prawns to mine yum 😋 . Thanks Nik for your never fail gorgeous recipes, you spoil us all.

  8. An amazing dish packed full of flavour and hardly any arbs when using the cauliflower instead of rice. Another winner in the eyes of Master 5 and Miss 7 which means a definite winner for this mum! Thanks again Nik and Team for creating and delivering the goods!

  9. Another winner. Quick easy and eaten by everyone, including my super fussy 8 year old. I was hoping for leftovers but the husband “just had to finish it”.

  10. Absolutely delicious! So quick and easy and loved by everyone! I left out the chicken, as I was serving it with the paprika chicken, so didn’t use the varoma tray (just chucked everything in the basket and gave it a stir once or twice). Makes heaps so plenty left over for lunches…Perfection!

  11. Made this for lunch today it was amazing, so tasty and even had plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow. You won’t be disappointed try this today it’s yum

  12. Nik this is the best Spanish rice I’ve had in a long while. Even fussy hubby loved it too.
    Thank you for all you do and create for us to enjoy xo

  13. Absolutely delicious! Made with arborio rice and left out the optional saffron. Has already been a repeat meal because everyone loved it. Thanks x

  14. Spanish rice has replaced the fried rice on our weekly rotation. Ermahgerd!! Don’t forget the fresh lemon at the end!

  15. The Spanish rice has been a huge hit in our house ! My very fussy 14 year old had it 3 nights in a row. What I love most about it is the simplicity of it. A simple recipe that’s super quick and full of amazing flavours! The sauce is to die for

  16. This recipe is delicious! Hubby made of for dinner yesterday and we’ll definitely be making it again. Leftovers today were even yummier!

  17. I think this may be my fave skinnymixers dish!!

    Incredible flavour, don’t forget the lemon and parsley at the end, it takes it to another level!!

  18. This was a huge hit at our house except for the rice hating 5 year old who only ate the peas, chicken and chorizo, but i didn’t expect any differnet from him. It will be a regular on our menu along with many of the other ALTOS recipes.
