DSC_2500.jpg

INGREDIENTS

1 cup basmati rice
1 medium onion
1 medium tomato
1 red pepper
10 stems of asparagus or green beans
1/3 cup green peas
2 cloves garlic
1 fresh chili pepper
1 Tbls olive oil or vegan margarine
1/2 Tsp paprika
1/2 Tsp thyme
1/4 cup white wine
Salt to taste
400ml water
(A dash saffron, if available)
1 cube vegetable stock

2 slices lemon
Parsley to garnish
1/4 cup pine nuts or crushed walnuts


Directions:
1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add minced onion, garlic and chili. After the onion starts to soften, add tomato (chopped into 1cm cubes) and cook for 1-2 min.
2. Add rice (without washing first), cook until the rice starts to turn clear (about 3-4 min).
3. Add the water, wine, paprika, thyme, salt and vegetable stock cube, and mix gently. Cook over high heat. If you are using saffron, make the water warm, add the saffron and wait for a while.
4. When it starts to boil, cover the pan and turn the heat down to the lowest level. Simmer for 5 min. Remove the lid, put the sliced red pepper, asparagus and green peas on the rice. Cover the pan again and simmer for 10 min.
5. Turn off the heat and wait for 5 min without removing the cover. Open the pan, garnish with lemon, parsley and the toasted pine nuts or walnuts. EAT!



Do you want to make an easy colorful main dish? You can make this paella! I recommend basmati rice for this paella. Basmati rice has great flavor and a nice texture that matches paella. I think you don't even need to use saffron! Please try it!

Vegan Memo:
- Unlike usual rice dishes, when making paella you shouldn't wash the rice first. Using unwashed rice helps the flavour to penetrate each grain.
- I used green beans instead of asparagus because I couldn't get asparagus that day.
- If you are using walnuts, crush and toast them before adding to paella.
