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
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.
Chile verde is more than a simple stew. Pork shoulder is rendered into supple, tender meat after a slow simmer in a sauce of roasted tomatillos, peppers, cilantro, and oregano. The resulting meat and sauce can be poured over rice or tucked into a tortilla. While the salsa verde requires a little prep work up front, the rest of the cooking is hands-off, thanks to the trusty slow cooker. This is a perfect dish to perfume your house when the weather gets crisp this fall.
