Vegan Paella – Being Vegan in Spain
I have always loved paella and here is my version of paella that is 100% vegan.
Paella for two persons:
Pan: 25cm diameter / 4cm deep
For the vegetable base I have added:
- 1 sweet salad onion (chopped)
- 1 red pepper (diced)
- 10 green beans (chopped)
- 1 potato (diced)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Handful of squashed olives
You will also need:
- Paella rice (approx 3 handfuls)
- Vegetable stock
- 2 large tbs of pimentón
- 1 small tin of artichoke hearts
I fried off the chopped onion with the 2 gloves of garlic and added the diced potato, diced red pepper and chopped green beans. To add to the flavour I added the squashed olives, very tasty!
Once the vegetables are fried off and the onions are browned I added three handfuls of paella rice. The rice gets stirred in and then cover the ingredients with vegetable stock up to just under the rim of the pan.
