Achieving an authentic Paella at home might seem difficult but it can be done without a paella pan and with just a few ingredients. We've designed our blends to help you achieve the flavours of the Spanish seaside in your own kitchen. Our saffron and paprika blend will provide the key aromatics while the garlic and parsley notes lift the dish. For another dimension, add a splash of white wine, if you have some open, and a squeeze of lemon to serve would be ideal!

Cook our delicious Spanish Paella in just Minutes

We’ve sourced and blended all of the unique flavour ingredients to make our authentic Spanish Paella. We bring these all together in a recipe kit, which consists of 3 flavour pots; a Paella Garnish pot, a Saffron Seasoning pot and a Paella Paste pot. Simply follow our recipe, adding a few items from your fridge, to cook this delicious Spanish Paella in just 25 minutes.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Start the base

    Heat some oil in a wide frying pan over medium-high heat and fry the chicken (if using), until golden.

    Add the onion, pepper, chorizo and PAELLA GARNISH and fry for 2 mins.

    Pour in the chopped tomatoes, mix well and fry for 2 more mins.

  • 2.

    Add the rice

    Boil a full kettle of water.

    Add the rice, a splash of white wine (if using; see tip) and the SAFFRON SEASONING and stir well.

    Stir in the PAELLA PASTE, then add 600ml of boiling water and mix well. Bring it back to the boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low and leave to cook for 15 mins (no lid).

    TIP:  If you have some white wine open, add a splash into the rice and stir it in until it has been absorbed before pouring in the stock.

  • 3.

    Add the prawns 

    Stir the prawns and peas (if using) into the rice and cook for 5 more mins. Add 30ml of water if it’s looking dry, but a little crispiness at the bottom of the rice is tasty.

  • 4.

    Serve!

    Squeeze some lemon juice over the paella, and serve with extra lemon wedges.

Carol - May 19, 2019

No real taste

Kelly - May 19, 2019

A favourite

Carol - May 16, 2019

I have lived in Spain for the last 20 years and have eaten many paella’s in that time, and this was as good as any I’ve ever eaten! Well done, this will have to be a regular in my box, and with such generous portions there is enough left for my lunch tomorrow, bonus!

Chantelle - May 16, 2019

So beautiful and full of flavour x

Laura- May - May 15, 2019

Delicious! The recipe said to use 600ml but I found that it was a bit too wet. I’d order again but use a bit less water.

Leigh - May 15, 2019

It was ok, probably won’t order again as I think there are better recipes, but was quick and easy so mission accomplished.

Sandrine - May 15, 2019

Nearly restaurant quality, very tasty! First time hubby cooked one of our Simply Cook recipe, he was well impressed. Will order again.

Sarah - May 15, 2019

The saffron leaves quite a bitter taste - not my favourite.

Sianna - May 15, 2019

Didnt enjoy it at all, flavourless

Mandy - May 14, 2019

I didn’t like this but I put a whole tin of tomatoes in and it was too much. May have to try again

Lisa - May 14, 2019

This was my son's choice and to be honest I wasn't particularly looking forward to it because I love paella in Spain. HOW WRONG I WAS! It was delicious and easy and will feature regularly in my boxes from now on!
