A little spicy chorizo goes a long way and adds a fabulous flavour to this colourful rice and vegetable dish. Camargue red rice is especially nutritious, with a higher fibre content even than brown rice, and a wonderful nutty texture.
Turkey breast or lean diced pork fillet could be used instead of chicken.
Altered ingredient amounts. I have never heard of camargue red rice, can anyone enlighten me and give some idea where to buy it, please - 03 Aug 2010
I cannot overstate how delicious this recipe is! It tastes even better on the 2nd day, and microwaves well. The Carmargue rice is hearty, and you get a lot of food for your money- I'd say this easily serves more than 4, although, you may want seconds. It takes a while to chop all the veg, but it's well worth it. - 30 Nov 2008
Never made paella before and used this recipe as a guide with whatever I had to hand. Paella rice, parsley, bay and thyme from the garden, lemon chicken leftover from yesterday, hot chorizio. Very versatile and very, very tasty. Seems a bit stogy compared to basmanti rice but that is how it is supposed to be (I think!) - 06 Aug 2010
