Delicious Vegetable Paella

.

Ingredients (use vegan versions):


  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped finely
  • 2 pressed garlic cloves
  • 2 sliced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cups of rice (basmati or any long grained)
  • a pinch of saffron
  • 1 red and 1 yellow bell pepper cut into pieces
  • 2 handfuls of thawed, frozen peas (not canned)
  • 2 handfuls of cut, cooked, green beans (not canned)
  • 1/2 cup of cut broccoli
  • 3/4 cup of vegetable stock or soup (I used Pacific Foods Vegetable broth)
  • salt, chopped parsley, a bit of lemon juice
  • a dash of sweet paprika

Directions:


Fry the onion and garlic in a big, deep skillet
with the olive oil. When it starts to wilt and
turn yellow, add the cut vegetables and cook for
about 10 minutes on medium heat. Add the rice,
salt to taste (remember stock or broth has salt!)
and a bit of saffron. Mix well and add the
broth. Cook on low to medium heat stirring
occasionally for about 20 minutes or until rice
is cooked according to preferred consistency. Do
not overcook or it turns mushy and lumpy. Add a
bit of water if it gets too dry. Remove from
fire and before serving add some fresh, chopped
parsley and a dash of lemon juice (about a
tablespoon).


Serve with a big bowl of salad with Italian
dressing.


Serves: 4-5


Preparation time: 45 minutes
