Expert Tips

Some time ago I visited Spain. What I didn’t anticipate was the delicious food. I of course went straight for the manchego cheese and tapas before moving on to bigger main course dishes. It was the paella that stopped me dead in my tracks and made me a firm lover of the Spanish food culture. This is my vegetable version of paella, honoring my first trip to Spain. This dish is loaded with various vegetables and a handful of chickpeas. Delicious!

Directions

  • 1 In a large skillet over medium heat, add in olive oil. Allow to get hot.
  • 2 Add in broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, red bell pepper and onion. Mix to combine. Sautée for 10 minutes.
  • 3 Mix in garlic, red pepper flakes and rice. Cook, mixing for an additional 3 minutes.
  • 4 Add in saffron threads, bay leaf, parsley, vegetable stock and chickpeas.
  • 5 Bring vegetable stock to a boil, cover pan with a lid, and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 6 Serve and enjoy!
