Vegetarian Paella—a Spanish rice dish—is traditionally made with seafood, chicken or sausage, and a seasoning base of saffron and tomato. But in this vegetarian version, I'm swapping the meat and fish for fresh produce and legumes. It's a veggie-filled dinner perfect for any night of the week.
Veg paella. After a bit of tinkering and a lot of research, I'm finally ready to present the last recipe in my series of Spanish dishes. How could I feature Spanish recipes without a tribute to the classic rice dish paella? Maybe you think that making paella must be too... #glutenfree #rice #spanish
So you have some leftover rice from your week of awesome “serve with rice” dishes. Know what that means? It’s time for fried rice — the perfect vehicle to use up any and all leftover rice in your fridge. In fact, it’s time for one of our simplest, most flavorful fried rice dishes: bacon and egg fried rice.
Enjoy this simple vegetarian version of classic Spanish paella. We added lima beans and peas for extra flavor and protein. Topping with grilled tempeh would provide an even bigger protein boost. Rice in paella should be al dente, so take care not to add too much water.
