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! MORE + LESS -
