Vegetarian Paella


So muggy at the moment! Went round my sister’s house, and sprawled out in deckchairs in the back-garden without fear of burning; so waaarrrmmm, but no direct sunlight. Then we watched England v Russia in Euro 2016 (it pains me to say it, as a long time cynic, but we might *actually* have a side worth cheering on for a change). And, in the spirit of Europe, I knocked up this tasty little paella…..


Vegetarian Paella

  • Red onion, chopped finely
  • Large garlic clove, chopped finely
  • One pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • Mushrooms, skinned, cleaned and chopped
  • Large garlic clove, minced
  • Handful green runner beans
  • Handful green peas
  • Handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Olive oil
  • Vegetable stock
  • Cayenne, paprika, turmeric (or saffron, if you’re like, well posh)
  • White rice

Heat the oil, and add the onion, peppers, ‘shrooms, peas, beans, cayenne & paprika, garlic and a dash of salt.  Heat and stir for 5-10 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and turmeric (or saffron, if you’re like, well posh).  Cook for a couple more minutes then add vegetable stock and white rice.  Heat to boil and then reduce to a simmer for around 30 minutes.

Add a dash of lemon juice towards the end.  Serve hot.
