Paella is one of the most famous Spanish dishes and it’s one of my favorite ones too because I really love rice. This is not the traditional recipe because is a healthier vegan version, but it’s quite similar and it tastes amazing, you need to give this awesome paella a try.
Use the veggies you want, I use different ingredients every time I make paella, it depends on the season or the vegetables I have in my kitchen. Sometimes I add seaweed too, like wakame or nori. Seaweed is a great fish alternative and it’s also full of minerals.
Traditional paella is made with chicken or fish broth because it isn’t usually vegan, but I’ve used this super easy to make vegetable broth, it’s healthy, delicious and so simple. When I don’t have vegetable broth I rehydrate dried seaweed in hot water and use this water to make the paella. If I don’t have seaweed neither, I use water, but I never use store bought vegetable stock or stock cubes because they are full of unhealthy ingredients like monosodium glutamate.
I’ve used fresh and frozen veggies, but if you can use only fresh ones, good for you! Frozen vegetables are so convenient, cheap and you can eat veggies that are not in season….
