Perfect for vegetarians, but great for meat-eaters too, this hearty rice dish made with starchy short-grain rice is wonderfully rich and satisfying.
Leftover diced chicken or cooked vegetables could be used. Sauté quickly in a little oil before adding to the paella three-quarters of the way through cooking.
My 12 year old sister made this for our family, she made the recipe with mushrooms, peppers, peas, rice, vegetable stock, onions, garlic, carrots, pepper and some chilli powder. She made it very easily with no disasters. The recipe proved a success and I would try it again, even though it looked more like a soup. - 16 Dec 2011
This was very nice, all the family liked it. I might add some chilli to it next time, just to give it an extra kick! - 14 Jan 2010
I put more paprika and turmeric than called for in the recipe, and it was quite tasty. I suggest cooking the rice by adding a little water at a time though, as it gives a nicer consistency (IMO!). Will probably make this again. - 22 Jun 2012
